High Water oil 8" x 10"
Another painting from one of my favorite areas in Montana, the Big Horn River. Where painting is concerned, I seem to go back and forth from using only washes of color underneath to applications of thicker paint right away. Part of it has to do with the surface I am working on and lately it has been a new (for me) portrait linen that is acrylic primed. The paint really glides on and blends easily, so I'm enjoying that particularly in passages like the water in the foreground here. I've always enjoyed a change in materials now and then, how about you?
