Wellfleet harbor revisited

30"x40" oil/canvas

I did a large painting referenced from a plein air piece from the Cape Cod trip. This piece required alot of energy. I premixed most colors, loaded up with stand oil, and still didn't have near enough paint to knife on. Mixed just as much paint the second day and got after it again. Finally got a good result.....I think.

It's when you build up the surface on that second day that you wind up with the juicy stuff. Great job, from here it looks fantastic.

Thanks David.
I now have a bigger mixing area and knife. It's gonna fly on the next ones.
