SOLD-Cart Path-8x6


you think your studio is small. ha! mine this week is 8 foot wide and 6 foot long. the front of a little camper i'm staying in on this painting trip. just big enough for the tripod/paint box, guitar, and a place for me to sit. the week has been overcast and drizzly all but a few hours yesterday afternoon so i've been doing some cloudy day paintings of boats and working in my camper studio for the past several days. the misquitos are outrageous here! Man i saw one misquito biting another in midair     :D
of course i take time off from swatting at them every now and then to play myself a song!
i used the bastardized version of the cape cod school technique on this one. blues and purples in the shadowy sections and yellows reds and oranges in the sunlit portions. adds a nice spark of color to an otherwise green scene of the cart paths that traverse Bald Head Island.

What? No buildings, no boats, no water??? The sky is falling! Great job on a colorful "green" scene!
