Du jour 2

Another Shiva oil paintstik on 5" x 7" canvas board.

Antje, a friend living at Fernandina Beach, Florida sent a photograph of her beach to me. This is my interp. Wouldn't it be lovely to be able to paint her beach plein air? Oh yeah, baby!

So far I've strictly used the stubs of paint, no turpentine and brush work. No layering. Just get it down fast without thinking it.

One thing I've noticed is that when I see the photograph of the painting, I'm more aware of the weak areas of the painting. It's almost like a correction lens of sorts. I wonder if it's because of the 2-dimensional photograph allows for some distancing from the subject ... or ??? Don't know yet. I'll have to think more on this.
