City Haze

Sometimes I’ll have a photo I love for the longest time and never paint it. I’ll keep telling myself, “It works in the photo, but you’ll never make that work as a painting.” Lately I’ve been taking those risky photos and just going for it. This is one of them, and I can’t put into words how happy this one made me feel when it was done. I was hoping to catch the feeling of that strange hazy lighting, where everything was grayed out, except for the occasional sharp lights catching a few of the edges.

  1. Very nicely done. I know what you mean about having a favourite photo and considering it too risky to paint. I’ve just tackled one from 2010, taken at dusk with an eight-second exposure. Yes, it was risky… and now I have a photo AND a painting that I love. Here’s to taking more risks!

    1. I would love to see your photo/painting, Anna. It’s interesting how a subsequent success will embolden us to take more risks! I started going through my photo archives after that!
