At my 2011 exhibition at Lisa Harris Gallery, I gave an hour-long talk on the In Sunlight series. This was a special opportunity for guests to get a studio perspective on the painter’s creative process — paint handling, composition, color strategies, and how to working from photos.
Parts 1 through 4 in HD video are available for viewing.
Part 1 covers the paintings Snow Rivers in Half Light and Pinnacle Peak, Last Light.
Part 2 covers the quartet of brilliant “yellow” paintings for which the series is named.
Part 3 covers the paintings Upper Ridge in Snow, Upper Ridge at Dusk, and White Space
Part 4 covers the paintings December Peak and Ascent, followed by a Q&A session
In the In Sunlight series I am experimenting with alternative ways to capture the illusion of natural light. In many paintings (discussed in Part 2), I completely abandon traditional value relationships in favor of saturated colors, modulated primarily with subtle hue and temperature differences.
