Sketch for Water Series

Sketch for Little Falls on Glenn Creek, graphite on paper
I have been busy with a new series focused on water.  I am working with smaller pieces on board, layering colors, building thin to fat.  Previously, I worked oils solely with linseed oil or way back with only turpinoid.  Now using a thin base layer cut with turpinoid and subsequent layers cut with turpinoid/linseed or linseed.  This means starting a number of pieces together to allow a bit of drying time.  The change in approach keeps me moving with sketching and planning.  A good discipline.
