New Studies

These two paintings are the result of using a large brush and some walnut oil to thin the paint and painting rather loosely and fast.  I think they turned out ok.  The 12 x 12 took around 1hr and the larger 16 x 20 inch took around 2 hrs.  This was a great exercise in painting only the values and no details and this should help me when I go outdoors in the spring to paint.

I have been enjoying doing some work with the palette knife lately.  There is a freshness that I cannot seem to get with the brush and I really enjoy painting this way.  Here is some new work all done with the palette knife and in oil. All of these paintings are available for sale directly from  me or on - link to the right.
