cape cod day one


12"x12" oil/canvas


Back from 4 days of painting on Cape Cod. I arrived there Wednesday evening and did a quick painting in overcast conditions. I chose a small lake close to our cabin in Dennisport as a painting site. Used the knife for most massing and moved the paint with brushes and stand oil.





I'll post each days work in the following days. Yes, the sun came out finally! My painting comrades endured days of heavy wind and rain before I got there, so we were all excited to see the improving conditions.

Beautiful Brian. Overcast weather with its close values can make the most moody paintings. I love the contrast between the glassy water and thickly painted trees.

Thanks Loriann, this was a remote location and did have a very distinct mood. I'm happy you see it!

Brian, Would you tell me, why did you choose stand oil to move your paint? Did you mix anything else into it?
