In Progress

A work in progress, 18" x 36," oil on gessobord

This is another drive by painting. I was on the way home from Peoria at the end of September and decided to hit the back roads.

I've taken a more illustration approach to this painting. The subject begged for bright bold rendering rather than a more subdued realistic approach. I still have more to do on it. The trees suck right now and part of the rolling landscape got too wet for me to work on. Lost the light at the end of the day too. 4:45 p.m. comes early for sunset these days.

Yesterday I sketched out and undercoated two more paintings also. Worries about getting a real job go away when I'm in the studio.
