|Spring in Northern Ontario 11x14 Oil on panel|
I was attracted to the warm evening sun contrasting to the cold blue ice on the creek, and the trees almost fidgeting to get back to growing and producing.
I tried to paint it as though I was sitting there and had to get 'er done as fast as possible. Almost succeeded but still needed a few touch ups the next day.
Trouble is touch ups quite often subdue the spontaneity, but lessons were learned:
- I like painting fast and loose.
- I want to paint plein air
- Wonder if acrylics would have been easier.
