Into the Winter Woods

Into the Winter Woods
Oil on canvas, 7x5
Today, I was really feeling a pull towards my oils.  I was able to get a couple of watercolor paintings half finished, and had to wait for the paint to dry before removing the resist.  I detest any kind of down time - since I seem to be squeezing every second from every minute!  So, I painted this small landscape while I waited.  Loving the buttery softness of the oils, it is such a contrast to the hard lines of the watercolors.  There are lots of soft edges here, and the muted grays and blues of the dark winter day.  The palette knife was my finishing touch.  This painting is number 739 in as many days, and Day 8 of the 30 Day Painting Challenge.
