Fixing the Fence-(new triad,one hour)


Fence III

The ‘final’ painting after one hour. The last part of the hour was spent refining shapes and shadows. I left the girl’s shirt as the under-painting, as I liked the colors as they were.




Acrylic, 9 x 12 inches

I painted this picture as a gift for my son who has just learnt to skydive this year. He’s completed 26 jumps and graduated with his first certificate. We thought it was a crazy venture at first, but since he’s described the process we’ve been very impressed with the method and responsibility of the process and we’re proud of him.

I watched his you-tube video many times, stopping it every few seconds to find a shot I liked and then I painted from the computer screen.
