Looking South From Marco Island In The Florida Everglades

“Looking South from Marco” is the title of Florida landscape impressionist painter Peter Pettegrew’s new study for another large 50×70 inch commissioned painting for a private collector. This is the view looking south from the patrons backyard (yes, this is Marco Island in the Everglades).
Pettegrew favors traveling to the site of his subject, studying the flora & fauna while hiking around, getting a sense of the place before starting a smaller “study painting” on location (plein air). Once the collector approves the study, Peter will start the master painting in his studio to complete the commission. In this case the gallery handling the sale liked the study itself so much they bought it for their own stock. There were a few changes agreed to by Peter and the collector which will be reflected in the final painting, so we are looking forward to seeing the large finished product this coming fall. It should take Pettegrew 2-3 months to finish– look for the post here and on pettegrew.com
