Although I had already painted the scene looking through this Moon Stone from the opposite direction, I could not help but notice, when the sun changed, how beautiful the view back to the Spa was. The massive stones each had a history and, although the specifics were kept a secret from me, nature confides in the artist’s eyes. Just studying the way that the mortar held the arch together and how each stone was hand hewn was fascinating. As with all of my paintings, in the final days, when I get to apply the darkest values, they come to life. Doing the underside of the arch was just that reward for me in this one. The contrast donated it its weight in more ways than one.
