Overcast Bluff- 9x12- oil on c.b.

One done this morning outside swansboro on my favorite bluff over looking the white oak tributary. it was overcast and i wanted to accentuate the colors i could barely make out of the subtle grays i was seeing.

isnt it wonderful to gesso over a failed painting and do one on top of it that you do like? thats what happened on this canvas board.

heres a detail of the luscious paint. its so fun mushing (sp) the paint all around on the canvas. it has let something go in me where i can just concentrate on the big shapes. i couldnt believe it! i even left a dock and skiff out that was there. i really am trying to edit down to only the main essentials.
