an oil painting of a tree in the desert
Windswept Tree at Tecolote. I keep going back and forth between thick and thin paint. This small colour study is very thick. I know for certain that I wasnt happy with the smoothing out of the edges and strokes after a couple days in my past few paintings. So Im experimenting with a thicker formula in my lead white paint making process. Well see how the brush strokes hold up after a few days...

California Clouds. Quick little banger. Reposting. Wasnt happy with the edges with the last version. Im liking these cloud edges a little more.

Whalers Cove. Did some refining on this plein air 16 x 20. Check out the original about 20 paintings down in my feed. Its quite different. Some areas I left alone while many were refined and reworked. When Im outside looking at my subject its quite hard to capture detail especially at 16 x 20. I try to capture the feeling and colours of the scene as I see it. Now that Im back in the studio for a while Ill be refining a few of these larger studies. Especially the ones that got stuck together!
