Above Freezing 16" x 20" o/c
Finally able to get back to painting after five weeks of pneumonia and recovery. ...Rusty, but it feels good to have a brush in my hand again.
Rather than getting back to painting by using a small painting support, I decided to force myself by using a larger than usual support. Instead of the smaller Masonite panel I went with a sixteen inch by twenty inch canvas..In hind sight, I think this was punishment for the long lay off. If I learned one thing while painting this piece, it was confirmation that one has to paint "something" most every day just t stay even..
It can be a long fight back after some time off !
My palette for this painting was, ultra marine blue, cerulean blue, cad red lite, alizarin, cad yellow med., yellow ochre, chromium oxide green and titanium white.
I tryed to stay with the number eight and ten brush,but gave in to the less than important detail.
Good to be back !
