About This Painting: After viewing the Henry C. White exhibit at the Florence Griswold Museum last week I realized just how very much painters at the turn of the century moved between tonalism and impressionism. I knew that of course, there are many examples, but this show, in particular, was a fascinating example of one artist's journey documenting his embrace of both styles and many works that are a synthesis of both. That's how I feel about my own work right now, it is a synthesis of both tonalism and impressionism drawing elements from both traditions. This painting has the tonal color scheme, soft light, atmosphere and harmony of a tonalist painting with the broken brush strokes of an impressionist painting superimposed over areas of hazy scumbled tone.
I suppose you though I'd never get this one done it's taken such a long time! I spent a long time in the thinking stages on this one and I'm finding more and more that that kind of time is indespensible to creating a finished painting.
