View Along Rt. 111


View Along Rt.111
Oil on gallery wrapped canvas, 12x12" SOLD

OK I am getting what I want now. What a relief! I thought about this during the night and figured out it wasn't getting looser that was a priority but letting go of ditsy details that I was after. That and more color than natural. Plus working on a stretched canvas makes a lot of difference, in terms of how the paint works. My previous tries were on a very fine toothed canvas, resulting in the ability to have more details, which I couldn't resist.
O nevermind.
This is what I was trying to do, and now I think I can make larger and larger works. Phew!
