|Flight by April M Rimpo|
16" X 24"
Having completed several urban scene paintings recently I was in need of a looser, more interpretive painting. Flight is the result. I did start with some of my reference photos, but they served as a jumping off point. They provided the overall flow of the image, but I chose one of my favorite color schemes for the painting, not worrying about the reference colors. I also wanted a good value plan, providing and interesting pattern of lights and darks. Below is an image of the painting in black and white, letting you see the values more easily.

The darks and lights help move your eye through the painting and add a great deal of energy to the finished piece.
