Summer Sun

Rhode Island Path. Oil on stretched canvas. sold

What you can't really tell from this picture is that I made this painting on top of another painting with lots and lots of paint on it.

Surely, I should have sanded down the original painting, but I didn't. I just dragged and smeared and pushed the new paint over the bumps and ridges, and honestly, I like the effect.

In addition, this lazy girl's recycling process ensures that I can't be too detailed, can't get too absorbed in the little stuff. So it's all part of the palette knife mindset I'm working to learn.

I really like this painting. I like the bright clearing at the end of the path, and the way the light falls in sparkly bits through the deep blue shade.

Thanks for reading!
