As part of the new series painting with Corot, I’ve been revisiting and rethinking some of my favorite places, and doing more small studies. These two small paintings from a quarry in Gloucester, Massachusetts, worked mostly with a palette knife, were an attempt to see the larger masses and ignore the small details. Perhaps a roller could achieve a similar effect on a larger scale?  Enjoy.

  1. I missed seeing these when you originally posted them. How nice to find them now. You remind me that Corot was one of my first loves … when I first began painting. I need to look at him again. These paintings are gorgeous. Corot is, no doubt, very proud of you.
