Last Light...Last Ice
11"x 14" oil
While I will have a bit of touch up
instudio with this plein air effort
of tonight, I am quite satisfied.
This piece attempted to take on a
lot of drama provided by the end of
the day's last light. I literally
had only one hour's painting time.
That being said every brushstroke
was an attack to get something down
and I didn't have time to soften
edges such as on the contours of the
distant pines. That I'll do instudio,
yet I think these postcard and one
hour paintings shared on this blogspot
has been critical in helping me see
and get a thing down quickly, boldly,
with a confident hand.
