Pool Square

Acrylic on Panel - 6 x 6 inches - Click Here to Bid

A familiar scene to anyone following this blog. However, now I can paint it more loosely and quickly. I laugh when I revisit some of my earlier pool scenes, with the precise "drawing" of every visible object, and all the hard edges and a sea of greens that are all the same. This one isn't some great crowning achievement, but it did boost my confidence quite a bit.  

I also got a new lightweight travel easel for my birthday that weighs next to nothing and is easy to set up. It feels a little flimsy, but is actually a pretty solid platform when it settles in. It's the Oil Painter's Package 200 from SunEden. Perfect for longer hikes ventures into the park.
