Here's something inspirational for me: a tree branch, elegant and vulnerable in the cold of winter. I digitally retouched this photo of a wild winter sunset. I'm doing a series of paintings now based on the initial photos. This is part of my goal to understand negative space better in order to make better compositions in all my paintings.
This is not exactly a skyline, but it is a view from far below the steeple of First Presbyterian Church of Charleston, SC. We had an exquisite trip there on a gorgeous April weekend -- lots of inspirational painting ideas. Sorry this is a late post this week!
