Today’s painting was actually inspired by a photograph posted on a forum I frequent. I just really liked the look and feel of the image and asked permission to try doing an abstract version. Mine has a far different atmosphere than his image does, mostly because it’s brighter looking rather than a moody evening long-exposure shot along a road. Plus my perspective is off, especially on the light trails, which is actually kind of okay because it fits better into that unnamed series I have going.
On a different note, this was the last page of a pack of 8×6 paper I had which was bound on two edges to make it easier to paint straight on the pad instead of needing to mount the paper somehow to prevent buckling. I guess this means I have to stop by the art store to look for a new one.
