Oil 16 x 12
With another snow storm in the forecast for next week, my
mind turned to thoughts of Spring this morning. This is the
work I was able to get done today, and I hope to get it
finished tomorrow. I tried something very different today,
and am really pleased with the results.
Usually I tint my canvas with yellow ochre or another color
and let it dry before I begin a painting, but today I painted
much of the background area with a warm pinkish coral color,
then painted right on top of this wet layer. I applied the paint
loosely and was careful not to overwork it so it didn't get muddy.
What do you think?
If you would like to see more of my work,
interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.
