   “A single of my a short while ago completed pieces is called Loire Valley Twilight. This piece was primarily based on a plein air sketch produced in 2018 and showcased a degree of realism. Having said that, it is a carefully composed piece where by I experienced to organize, invent and redesign all the factors to make the composition work. This features shades, values as properly as the person components in the portray. For example, the boats in the foreground ended up totally manufactured up centered on the normal types of vessels you’d come across along the river. The values ended up also very carefully executed to build that precise time of working day when the sunshine sets, and the to start with lights of the town occur on.”
