Tonalist Sunset…

I’ve become very interested in a tonalist approach to painting, and to be honest, I feel I’ve been applying many of it’s philosophies throughout my time painting. As much as I love detail sometimes, the pure bliss of laying colours down this way really appeals to me. The work of the American Landscape master George Inness has really knocked me on my bum. The guy was incredible, a fellow Taurus and more importantly, a truth seeker, a seeker of life’s mysteries… his work and his unique approach to life really moves me. I expect to be making a lot of paintings in this manner in the future.
