Down East...

The Stowaways    11' x 14"    O/P

A rainy day painting edited and painted using photo reference and composition sketches. The support was a Masonite panel with two coats of gesso . The panel was not pre stained .
For this painting, I used my usual limited palette and Gamsol Odourless Mineral Spirits .

The first dark washes were applied very "wash like" and left to evaporate before applying the lighter colours. 

I used a number eight bristle brush and a soft haired quarter inch brush. (for applying the dark washes)

'til next..
