Corot’s Morning

TM9143 Corot’s Morning 36×36 oil on panel

I began Corot’s Morning last winter, on a day when I was yearning for the warmth of spring. The first day and layer of painting went well, with the major shapes blocked in using monoprint techniques to create textures “behind” the leafy trees and water reflections. After weeks of drying, and much thought, I finally picked up the brush again and finished it. Now it can join two previous paintings in my series devoted to the idea of painting alongside the great landscapist Camille Corot. Details below. Enjoy.
