It feels like absolutely forever since I’ve painted an Indiana Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument painting. In reality, it was about two months ago since I finished my last versions of the painting. Since then, I’ve taken some time to paint other subjects, but recently got back into painting my signature piece to make sure I don’t get too far behind.
I realized looking through past images that I had never done the monument in turquoise before (I’ve done at turquoise sky or base, but never a monument). So, here are my first two attempts. Turquoise may seem like a challenging color to work with, but it really is bright and powerful. The orange sky version actually features a purple base (but for some reason my scanner made it blue?). Nonetheless, these will eventually go to homespun for sale!
