River Current (Oil Bar Painting Day 1) Originally uploaded by randubnick
This is another oil bar painting in progress. I started it two days ago, and this is how it looked at the end of the first session. I had time to sketch in the basic composition. This painting may look abstract, but it is actually from observation, a close-up view of the current in the Merrimac River. I am using one of my photos for reference. This is one of a series of paintings for a show in Manchester, New Hampshire.
