Game On..! 10" x 12" O/P



I think that the child playing on the ice is an attention grabber for the observer. The figure also adds movement and excitement to the overall scene while helping to hold the viewers attention.



My palette for this painting was the same as the previous painting. My additional colours were English red and Raw Sienna. The panel was pre stained a light orange colour just before painting on it. OMS was used sparingly at the beginning of the painting and increased as the the 'thick over thin' rule was adhered to as the painting neared the finish.



This painting was a change from the usual. I enjoyed this one !


'til next..
