Painting 'Left Turn'
|18”x 14” oil on panel available at Elevation Gallery in Canmore, Alberta, Canada. This oil painting was done in a more painterly manner. James enjoyed the use of texture in this oil painting. The challenge was to still achieve a sense of wetness and how form and light shone through water. James’s original source photo was taken in the early evening while driving through the streets of Vernon. It was just the right lighting where it was not yet fully dark, and the colours of traffic lights and car signals were enhanced by the effects of water.|
