Another from the Hopper
Another 24x24 oil on canvas painting of the Hopper and Greylock from Sloan Road that I completed last week. The setting is early winter without snow on the ground except at the top of Greylock, late in the afternoon with the slanting sun light illuminating everything. There are so many variations visible from this one location. The variations translate into different and interesting compositions, with the elements of the variations setting up relationships more noticeable in the paintings than when at the site. I'll continue with the Brooklyn drawings tomorrow.
