Fog at Yarra GlenFailed attempt at painting an abstract landscape

Photorealism painting - Fog at Yarra Glen
This is a painting Bert wishes he had never attempted. It was extremely difficult to replicate the soft focus blur that was in the original photograph.
Bert may repaint this. Especially the raised brush strokes in the upper right.
You learn from your mistakes. Well sort of: Bert went on to make another mistake where he hadn’t judged the difficulty/scale/painting support correctly. Witness Sunrise over Yarra Glen.
Dimensions: 90x60cm.
Painted: 2014.
Materials: Acrylic on MDF board.
Availability: For sale $100 unframed. $400 framed.

The story behind Fog at Yarra Glen

Painting fog as a photorealist is a challenge. This is because the nature of fog, with its blurring of the scene, makes it both difficult to draw and paint. The photograph location is the main bridge into the town and in the background you can see the old and unused bridge.
