Catching light.



Lighten the Day   Oils on gessoed 140lb paper   8 x 11 inches   


Ebb tide and the light sparkles on standing water.


Studio Musings...


Gessoed paper is quite tough and withstands a lot of scraping back to reveal an underpainting.  Pulling the paint down with a brush and knife I wanted to create a watery effect across the foreground.   The dimpled paper is perfect for interesting marks.
