Morning Camp

Acrylic on Canvas Board - 14 x 18 inches
Trying to paint bigger. This one's 14x18. I'm using a bigger brush and trying to get back from the canvas more. It's hard to resist putting in details, but it's starting to make sense. If I allow myself to just put in a few key points for reference, I find I can hold off on putting any real detail in.

I like the absence of detail. Looks like a really good, very painterly landscape. It's perfect as it is! All that wonderful color and fast strokes give it a rugged outdoor feel. Love it!
