This is a painting I did from a photo I took out in the Black Rock area. The photo was taken in the early morning hours looking west. It was a frosty morning. I did this painting around the same time I did the Old Boat painting; and like that painting, I used only a pallet knife here also. I like this one a lot because the orange toned board peaks out throughout this painting (though it’s kind of hard to tell in this photo). I still think it needs just a hint of some buildings off in the distance for balance. Maybe next time.
