Across the Lake Two oil studies on canvas 3 x 3.5 inches each
Tiny pieces of fun. I found these simple little canvases on a wood frame in the paint shop and thought it would be a challenge to paint a landscape on them. It was an interesting exercise to use the same size brushes as my larger pieces and certainly challenged my patience but I persevered.
I found the paintings came together when I applied more oil and refrained from fiddling. Pretty much the same lesson I have learned with all my work. I did have a little sculpt with a smaller brush to shape the drizzly bit of reflection and I painted around the sides to finish.
They have dried now and the next question is....do I let them out into the world?
Why not?...they are honest little studies.
Offered as a pair they can stay together or be given as gifts. Special price offer.
Here are larger images of these two little ones...
