oil on canvas board
8 x 10
Done in Lynn Gertenbach's art class. I didnt know what I wanted to paint today so I brought 2 reference photos. A moonrise and waves crashing on rocks. Lynn liked the colors in the water in the waves so that is what I went with. We changed it a bunch from the reference but I think it still reads as the Azores. Painting this was a nice departure for me. 1) I think this is the smallest I have ever worked. I think I like it though. There is something sweet about the smaller size. 2) I did the second half of this using a palette knife. I havent used a palette knife for painting since high school, approx 7 years. I will try and take a better picture tomorrow.
