"New Rushes", plein air oil painting


"New Rushes", 8 x 10", plein air oil painting
SOLD  
 

This was done last week at Lloyd Park, one of my favorite places to paint. The pond is getting this yellow stuff growing on the surface, which, while a great painting thing, I don't think it is too great for the pond. I didn't think I would be able to pull this one off as it seemed just to daunting to do all that negative painting with wet oils without creating mud, but I am happy with the way it turned out. Just shows that perseverance pays off.
Enjoy!

Is that a cityscape in the background? I'd say that's a departure for Sharon.

No that isn't a cityscape in behind, although it is an interesting idea!
