oil on canvas
I started this last week at the studio and today went in for a third session. I didn't use as limited a palette as I did in the previous post, but I did try to keep my colours pared down. I definitely understand what oil painters mean when they say they will go back in and sharpen edges after the piece has dried a bit. Today I was able to do just that, but by the end of a few hours it was all wet again... and some areas were really thick with paint, so before making more mud, I packed it in and I will continue in a week or so. For this one I am using a photo I took last fall standing with my back to the river and looking at the glorious show provided by the trees and grasses.
So my two little paintings, "Shady River" and "Over The Point" have arrived in their new home! They are cozied up by the fire in a beautiful 300 year old English cottage and the new owner even sent me two pictures to include on my blog! How fun is that? Thank you R. for making this such an enjoyable transaction!
