I have been working like to a champ to plow through these new oil paintings, and although none of the new north/west paintings are complete, I am too excited to not share the journey.
Since 2004 I have been painting in acrylics, trying to obtain the look and feel of oil, and it has just never happened. They are so different. Finally, 15 years later, I am painting in oils and feel like I am starting to touch down on the work I have been trying to attain all along.
Some of you will recognize this landscape from previous variations I did in acrylic:
It is by far one of my favourite landscape subjects – that solitary tree growing out of the rocky mountain side. Stay tuned for the finished pieces, and for details on an upcoming event during the May Long Weekend!
