Upper Fork II

Acrylic on Canvas Board

I had done this shot as a postcard a while back and it's been calling me to try the same thing only larger. A lot larger. This it 13x18 inches, and I used some bigger brushes. I actually went to the paint store and bought some 2-inch house painting brushes. The gang of day laborers hanging out front got all excited when I exited and asked if I needed any help painting. I do, but I wasn't sure which of them was really into impressionism, so I just said "no thanks."

Turns out I was still too chicken to use a 2-inch brush. Maybe tomorrow.

This one is a place I would like to be. You did a good job on the reflection.

Never thought of using a house painting brush for painting oils. I think I will check them out, they are at least cheaper. I we be looking forward to seeing one of your paintings done with a 2 inch brush. Good luck!

lol! maybe that's what I need to help with my canvases. some assistants!
this is beautiful--clearly you need no assistance.
I block in w/2" brushes on larger work.
