MISTY LANDSCAPE oil on canvas, 2x3
I've been trying to decide what subject to paint for an upcoming show, so today I did 2 studies. I painted them in oil on a scrap of unstretched canvas on which I had drawn several 2x3 inch rectangles. I like both studies, but I'll probably paint Whisperwood in March first.
It was nice doing these tiny paintings! I used a #4 bristle flat brush and burnt siena to lay down a value sketch. Then, I painted on top of the value sketch, leaving the burnt siena showing in places. I don't remember ever painting this tiny before, but I like it. It's a great way to plan a larger painting.
