Egret on a Rope

Egret on a Rope, oil on stone, 4x4".

Here is a brand new tile painting - oil on cream-colored marble.  It is 4x4", and has a gold border.

Painting Locke

So I found a Guerrilla Painter 9x12 pochade box on clearance, which meant I had to take it for a test drive this weekend!  I went to Locke, CA, with the Sacramento Plein Air Painters meetup group.  Locke is a turn of the century old-west town south of Sacramento, now owned by the CA State Parks department.

This is 3 hours of work on location - I might work on this painting some more the next time I go to Locke, as I can't use my usual technique of layering during a single session of plein air.  This is painted on a 12x12" sheet of gessoed Dibond aluminum.

Oh yeah, and the pochade box?  Nice.  :)
