I have had this image of a Mitchell Johnson painting
hanging in my studio for over a year now.
Truro (Blue and Yellow)
2012 22 x 28 oil on linen
by Mitchell Johnson
Then yesterday, I found this photo
I took in Truro in 2001.
and thought I'd play around a little.
I realized my fascination with MJ's paintings is the texture.
( he uses a dry brush and a linen surface? )
I painted this on my usual canvas board, using lots of paint.
Then took a palette knife
to blur the lines and simplified the shapes.
