On my Easel

The Path
24 x 30
Oil on canvas
I was working on this painting and decided to put it aside for a while. I Looked at it with fresh eyes and decided to re-work it. Now I'm really starting to feel it. It's finally going in the direction I envisioned. working this large for me is a challenge. I need to remember the larger you work the bigger brushes you need to use.
