March Break..


Winter Dreams Of A Summer Place    10" x 12"     o/p

 It is that time of year again in my region.  Only a week or so before the official start of 'spring'. So, as many folk head south or to a warmer climate, I am left to dream of a warmer place, perhaps a summer place. 
One will not find the scene in the above painting in this snowy region. I think in my mind, it will be my spring break.

This piece was painted on a Masonite panel that had previously been covered with two coats of gesso and a coat of grey acrylic paint. The grey paint was a number five value on the grey scale. 
My palette for this painting was my current limited palette with the noted changes and colours that I used for the previously posted  painting.

I enjoyed doing this painting, as much as I did dreaming about a "go away" March break .

'til next..
