Another Recent Work: “Sun Rose”

"Sun Rose" | Oil on canvas | 36" x 36" | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- This is the second of two paintings made from sketches based on the sculptural works of Lee Bontecou.

Whenever you go out to paint, try to forget what objects you have in front of you–a tree, a house, a field, or whatever. . .Merely think, here is a little squeeze of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streak of yellow, and paint it just as it looks to you, the exact color and shape until it gives your own naive impression of the scene before you.
