On the edge of Prout’s Neck, Maine there is a boat landing called Ferry’s Beach and it has a wonderful quality of light and calm, I hope I captured both in my new oil painting, on canvas.
This is my oil painting from yesterday, as I have said I am working on learning to paint oils, so I paint at least one per week, and I limit myself to one painting session for the bulk of the painting. I have found some familiarity beginning to happen with the process, and am finding the brushwork coming together. It is a process that is for sure, I do wish I would have started this journey when I was younger, it is a magnificent medium. Buy a few colors, a couple of bristle brushes and give it a go.
