Driftwood Painting – NC Coastline

Just finished this unusual commission. The client asked for a painting of a typical North Carolina inner banks waterway scene on a piece of driftwood found in the Pamlico River in Washington, NC. The piece is 10′ wide by 10″ high and has a very weathered rough surface. It is a beautiful piece of wood with old nail holes along the edges. I used the natural contours of the wood to inform the overall composition. The painting is like a series of small paintings and visual narrative of the river. It was both fun and challenging to paint.

Here are selected images from the piece;

The above picture was taken as a work in progress, the other images above are sections of the finished piece.
