Country View

Country View, 6 x 8

Believe it or not, I've been painting, but took off to Hunt without the cord that allows me to upload photos to my computer from my camera...not too helpful for blogging.

This is a good example to me of how the smallest stroke can suggest something enough that the brain fills in the rest. The "structure" at the back of the field, created with just a small mark, added what I was after--I'm always amazed at how often little strokes can have impact beyond their size or complexity.

I completely agree with you, you said it so well. One of my favorite things about this little painting happens to be the small little swipe in the background. Also, I always appreciate your variety of brushstrokes, very nice as always!

Love the colors and composition. And yes, w/ the small dailies, ever stoke counts!

As always, I love your paintings and especially your landscapes. Very nicely done

Your so right about the suggestive storkes I've happened on a few myself especially in oil painting.

I also agree with that small brush stroke that makes all the difference. I love those strokes!
