Finally winter seems to be winding done. I changed gears a bit and started painting some small painting of things. These take a few hours to paint and and hour or so to do the prep work and set up the still life. I shoot them with the DSLR and make life size prints. I then paint sort of Alla Prima. Hope it will keep me busy until fishing starts. I like the effect of black backgrounds. In the past I've avoided them but as small paintings it seems to be nice. On the hunt for a nice looking winter peach and plumb.
