Gentle Stillness


oil on board, 8" x 10"


This painting was started plein air and finished in the studio. I enjoyed painting this scene on site and it was my first time trying out my new Open Box M plein air box. I found it very light and compact. My mixing surface was close to my painting and I can't wait to paint plein air again.

What can I say? I really had the urge to paint a mannequin with blue hair.
