Landscape Challenge #19 & #20

"Moody Marsh"
12" x 4"
oil on canvas

"Wild Horses"
10" x 8"
oil on acrylic

The wild horses are an experiment. I had heard of people painting on acrylic and wanted to try it. The surface is too slick and "cold" for me. My favorite surface is wood - it's warm and has just the right amount of "tooth". One day I'll try copper - I heard that's a good surface to work with, but seeing how I like a little "grab" to the surface, I'm guessing copper won't like that either. 

The marsh painting is done in the Zorn palette using only, ochre, cadmium, black and white. 
It's so moody. 

Auctions going on now:
