Clouds Over Prairie

Clouds Over Prairie   8x6   Oil on Paper/Panel                       Sold
This little painting was one of a number I did for Art in the Park this summer and the first one sold. I discovered Arches oil painting paper in May when Delta had it on sale and I had so much fun painting on it. I underpainted whole sheets in warm colours and then split the sheets. It started out as a lark testing a new medium and it was such a pleasure to paint on I've done a series of smalls. My favorite part of using it is how it grabs the paint randomly.

Lovely, as always, Tracey. I've purchased a few sheets of the paper you've used here, but haven't had a chance to try them out yet.

Thanks Terry, I hope you took some with you as I found it worked well outside this summer!
