Now its Nature at work there as thousands of dead fish clog the canal in Shinnecock, Long Island, New York. A sad situation.
Artists do important work recording the history of an area. There are landscapes I wish I could pull from my brain to paint. Indeed, there are paintings stored there, images viewed over the years specifically to paint. I've not tried that before, to paint from memory without sketches one of those special moments in my history.
Are their landscapes you have stored away to paint? Have you transferred any of them to brush, pigment and onto canvas or paper?
