Light Study

Light Study
5x7 oil on gessobord

I set out this evening to do a larger painting, drove to the north end of the island, walked out onto the beach and got my easel all set up... only to realize I'd left my brushes at home!
Fortunately, I remembered I had a tiny 1/4" touch up brush in my purse and a small palette knife in my backpack, so rather than start a large painting, I decided to give my meager tools a whirl on a 5x7 inch panel and at least do a small light study. Necessity being the mother of invention, I actually really like the fine, expressive marks made by the palette knife, may have to use it more often!
