Pond 8 x 10
Pond at 11-mile. This was a photo reference I saved from a trip to 11-mile in the fall. Very abstract composition, the "weeds" floating on top gave an interesting dimension. I tried the Lukas water mixable oil set I just got fresh out of the tube with just water as a solvent. Sticky and gooey. I'm going to try again today, have saved the paint on the palette, and will see if it has seasoned enough to be oil paint consistency. Am trying it under all different conditions, including freezing my small palette from the other day. It's a good way to store paint already squeezed out that is not going to be used for awhile. Under plastic wrap of course. Not to be mistaken for anything edible.
