Painting after Dark

In the past, I have avoided painting in the evenings, after dark, because of vision difficulties. No matter the amount of artificial light, the next day my paintings simply did not look like I had painted them -- the colors were always slightly off. But one can only watch so many re-runs or read so many books, so I decided to paint after dinner last night, thinking that maybe my new paint application method would work OK in artificial light. I was right! This morning, this painting looked just the way I had painted it:

The Trek

However, this photo of it does not show the colors accurately -- in reality it is somewhat more muted. There are problems with this painting anyway, and maybe I will try it again. For now, it's an homage to Nathan Oliveira.

  1. I like it. A lot! The figure is strong yet appealing, even elegant. I look forward to seeing more PM paintings?
