Northern Coastal View
This past week, I've been working on (among other things) this 11" by 14" studio piece, "Northern Coastal View". I began with a "transparent wash" of color, diluted with varying amounts of turpenoid to arrive at the correct "values". When I was satisfied with the placement and values, I applied pretty generous amounts of oil paint with more confidence. This is a cool trick I picked up from Robert Watts, and I intend to use it and explore it for everything it's worth!
