A well-known bridge is at the centre of this magical wintry scene in New York’s Central Park. Painted by artist Rod Chase from a series of photographic studies. Mounted in a brushed silver, traditional spoon frame.
Rod Chase's paintings begin with several monochromatic colour studies on an illustration board. While the painting is based on a single black and white photo, hundreds of additional digital photographs are used to help determine the composition and create additional detail. Next, the image is carefully drawn using both grids and freehand techniques. Using the photos as reference, he divides the painting into small sections, bringing each area to a finish before proceeding to the next. The acrylic paint is applied in thin layers so as to leave no visible brushstrokes. Occasionally, Chase will use an Iwata airbrush to soften the sky. As he advances, changes are made from the original photo, so objects are moved, values altered and detail added; thus producing a work that is superior to the photo. Each painting usually takes two months of full-time work to complete. It is not necessarily a photographic quality he's after but rather reality as viewed through a timeless window.
