TM9251 Winter Walk in the Woods #32 6×6 oil on paper

There’s the old expression – practice, practice, practice – and there really is no substitute. The numerous small studies I do each week are a never-ending source of insights. Sometimes it’s an idea for a larger composition, or it might just be following chance, like riffing off a familiar location and letting chance introduce new elements. Whatever happens, painting these little babies is a pleasure. The first view overlooks a creek below the ledge, deep in shadow. The second is down by the creek, further on where the grade evens out. Enjoy.
