acrylic and oil on canvas

I am happy to finally show this painting after a last minute tweak that made a huge difference to one area of the river. When I initially began laying out the composition I used really washy layers of acrylics which I left to show through the thicker, top layers of oils. I like the effect and the contrast of those warmer reds, pinks and oranges that pop up next to the cooler greens and blues.
Next I am on to an even larger canvas which will hold a spectacular mossy scene from Sulphide Lake in the La Ronge area. It is going to be a doozy! It will test me. I am not convinced I can pull it off. But I will try.
