5 x 7 Oil on Masonite
A quick study in oil. Thought I'd never say that :-) There's plenty more to do on this, but I'm happy with the outcome and the hazy feel. I always hate to go back into my paintings to "fix" things, because that eliminates the freshness of the piece. I probably will leave this alone and just varnish it, which will bring out the colors. We are having a issue with photographing these oil pieces. It seems to be entirely different than photographing pastels. The latter comes out looking great, but the oils seem to look a little muddy in the photos. If anyone out there knows the secret, email me. Meanwhile, I'll be researching on the Web. By the way, I want to thank everyone for all the kind words about my work. You have no idea how grateful I am and how much it means to me!!
