Portals to Light
6X8, Mixed Media on Panel
This is a little plein air piece that has been sitting around for quite some time. I was never terribly happy with the result in the field. There were a lot of things I DID like about it but it was never really connecting with me. I knew what it was too and had even written about it before here. I started this with Golden Opens and it was one of my first attempts at using those. I was a little bit frustrated that I was unable to make a nice deep dark with them at the time. I later purchased some new colors so I could get deeper darks but then found myself unhappy with the consistency of the paint and not able to work it like I would have liked.
Regardless, I may still take the Golden Opens with me in a couple of weeks when I travel to Denmark!
Anyway, enjoy this one because I really like the result after the rework with oils in the studio.
