Right now I'm working on oils for The Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland in November. Yesterday I decided to try some simple little color studies of Maryland's Eastern Shore....no detail, just mood. These little paintings are a way of working out colors - how one color works against another. I like the way they're turning out. This little piece is done on a 4" x 4" panel. I painted the panel a dark color then did a 2.5" square landscape on the dark paint which makes the moody landscape colors even more intense.
