In an effort to feel like I am accomplishing something I switched to a smaller size and to force myself into having to apply more paint, I chose a plain birch board. Since an unprimed board absorbs the oil in the paint, it means I must paint thickly, which is not my preferred method. I opted for this simple scene that I shot a few years ago on the road between Laramie and Cheyenne. It went quickly despite the fact that I had to apply one dab of paint at a time and I could not scrub my brush to cover large areas. Gives a good impression of a hot late summer afternoon me thinks.
This painting is in need of a name if anyone is so inclined.
