This is a recent painting from April, 2010. It is small, 6 inches by 8 inches. It is about the smallest size I am comfortable painting on. I originally planned to knock out some quick studies using the smaller panels. Oddly, I spent about the same amount of time on this smaller panel as I did on the size I typically work in. However, what it did was to effectively increase the size of my brushes, forcing me to simplify. I am beginning to use a palette knife more frequently, which is a lot of fun.
