New work in oil

I started these two paintings today with a thin wash of burnt umber.  I basically just painted the paint onto the canvas and then wiped off where I wanted my lights to go.  It is a very simple way to start laying in your values and should make the painting progress easier as I get into the color layers.  These two are a continuation of the series of paintings that I am doing on the Cowichan River Estuary.
