   “A single of my not too long ago done items is called Loire Valley Twilight. This piece was primarily based on a plein air sketch made in 2018 and featured a diploma of realism. Nonetheless, it is a meticulously composed piece wherever I experienced to arrange, invent and redesign all the components to make the composition work. This incorporates colours, values as very well as the personal components in the portray. For illustration, the boats in the foreground have been solely designed up dependent on the common kinds of vessels you’d find along the river. The values were being also very carefully executed to generate that specific time of day when the sunlight sets, and the very first lights of the town come on.”
