The Quarry Pond

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.
