Piece description from the artist
An impressionist view of a snowy English field at Dawn, with the sunrise cutting through the fog. The thick, quick strokes & pastel color scheme are meant to capture the essence of a cold winter morning in the British countryside.
Jonathan Jahnke is a freelance painter, illustrator, and photographer living in New Orleans, Louisiana. In an abstract style, Jonathan distorts reality following the school of "post-impressionism.":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-Impressionism He is most interested in capturing the psychology behind a scene than the exact details. He uses dark, sketchy lines over bright, primary colors to simplify a piece down to its essence. Jonathan draws inspiration from the color, architecture, and character of life in New Orleans, as well as his travels through Europe and Asia.
