   “1 of my lately completed items is called Loire Valley Twilight. This piece was based mostly on a plein air sketch manufactured in 2018 and highlighted a degree of realism. Nevertheless, it is a thoroughly composed piece where I had to prepare, invent and redesign all the features to make the composition get the job done. This involves shades, values as well as the unique components in the painting. For illustration, the boats in the foreground were being solely manufactured up centered on the typical varieties of vessels you’d locate together the river. The values were also cautiously executed to make that specific time of day when the solar sets, and the to start with lights of the metropolis appear on.”
