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...

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… Left Alone, Larger, The Outsiders, Beautiful Places, Scene, Colours, Paintings, Detail, The Originals
