It’s a little tricky going off trail, but worth it. The first small painting is from a creek in the White Mountains off interstate 93, while the second is a bit of ledge (buried by snow) at Hamlen Woods. Enjoy.
Technical painting notes: Both paintings are on prepared paper. I use rag watercolor or printmaking paper, and shellac it on both sides to isolate the fibers from the oil in the paint. They are meant to be shown in frames, matted and under glass. Doing hundreds of studies and small paintings allows me to experiment and try out new ideas easily.
