12"x 14" oil
Well this morning took the cake. I painted this view of ski roundtop at around 8am. The view is from a field at my parents house and when I got to the house the temperature was 18 degrees f. That's after I painted. It's always colder in the fields downhill from the house. I'm guessing it was around 12 degrees with a very slight breeze and good sunlight. This is the thickest I've ever had my oil paint get. I mixed quite a bit right on my painting surface. The stuff I mixed on palette left peaks when I pulled it off. Much like stucco or icing. I wear boiled wool shoes and this was the first time my feet got chilly. Of course I was standing on hardpack snow/ice. I'm almost tired of describing the weather but this year is exceptionally cold. Spring is going to feel really good!
