Shore Flowers   ..16" x 20"   ..O/C

It feels as though I have not painted on canvas for some time so it going to take some getting used to again.
There was not much experimenting going on during the painting of this piece. It was all alla prima for the most part from start to finish. The canvas was not prestained therefore, I painted on a white gessoed canvas.

My palette was a limited palette and as I painted , I added a couple of other colours for accent here and there, mainly the yellow green and English red for the dead spruce.. 
My only medium was OMS ( odourless mineral spirits )

It felt good to be painting on canvas again.

'til next..
