"Summer Escape"

"Summer Escape"
16" x 20" Oil on canvas

This painting was done in Rick Berg's class. He brought the photo in and Deb and I both worked on the same reference.Rick wanted us to paint with a black and white underpainting, then cover it all in red iron oxide before starting with colour. I wish I had taken a photo with that start. I found this a very interesting and different way to work. I really like the shadows and light in this painting.

 I wish I had a photo of Deb's finished painting. It is just like penmanship and signatures, each of ours is definitely painted individually.
