Mille Lacs Lake

Mille Lacs Lake
oil painting on canvas board, 8 x 8 inch, unframed

This painting is out of my comfort zone. I really like to do more realistic paintings, but I wanted to try something new. This one has a texture laid down first and then a tint rubbed onto it. I then did a painting with a very limited palette - a red, ultramarine blue, and transparent red plus white. I don't know if I really like it or not....please feel free to comment on this one.

I think that I will try it again, but maybe with one hue and then like a drawing with a touch of color....stay tuned.

Thanks for stopping by.
