Allure of An Early Morning
10x8 oil on cradle panel
The warm winter grasses inspired this painting.  I started this with a quick thumbnail sketch and recorded color notes on the side.  I used a Winsor & Newton paper that is designed for oil paints.  It's a great way to explore color combinations and design.
