"the jenkins county blues"
18" x 24" oil on canvas
I worked on this painting yesterday from the study I did last week. Although it seems like a fairly straightforward landscape, I was surprised how long it took me to complete it. I felt like I was making a lot of decisions along the way. What to play down, what to build up. It has a lot of texture in it and a lot of palette knife work as well. I am happy with the way it turned out.
It does appear a little greener in this photograph than what it actually is. Photographing greens is such a pain!
