Expressive & (not quite) tonalist landscapes

In September 2023 I began a series of  expressive and (not quite) tonalist “invented”  landscapes.  The compositions record something that I observed in nature that was fleeting but revelatory.  The works are in oil using a limited palette, inexpensive  chip brushes, rags and my fingers. They are based on observation, eidetic memory, and reference imagery.  Like much great art, the paintings are a combination of fact and fiction, hard work and technical competence.
