Smith Creek Industry- 12x16
painted outside today in blistering heat and unlike the beach yesterday, no breeze to make it bearable. on days like this i dont know how i used to use acrylics. about the time you'd mix it on the palette it would dry in the brush. impossible to paint with when its sticky as youre putting it on the canvas
oils are soooo much better. i love how theyre gooshy (is that a word?)
this subject matter was very popular in the 30's and 40's. industrial scenes, working themes and working locations. i like that stuff too. i think this place was shredding pieces of trees into mulch. thats what those piles are in the tractor trailer.
todays not the day, but remember to keep watching this blog for my "free painting giveaway day".
