”ATTRITION” by Kim VanDerHoek.
9 X 12 inch Oil Painting on Raymar linen panel.
Not For Sale YET…
Oh, how I wish I could have more moments like these.
This is the last painting from the Greg LaRock workshop. This painting taught me that at a certain point in the process I should turn my back on the view and focus on what exactly makes the painting work.
The winds were terrible the day I did this one. All that dirt you see imbedded in this painting is wind-blown sand. It was challenging to paint with so much debris in the air but I’m very happy with the result. I’m keeping this one so that I can follow-up on Greg’s other suggestion, which was to turn this one into a big painting.
Wish me luck!
