Arroyo Shelter – Daily Painting

June 22nd, 2007

Arroyo Shelter” – 8 x 10 – oil on canvasboard

When I take a walk through the Hahamongna wetlands area in the nearby arroyo, I love to look at the various forms of short shrubbery and small trees that are home to so many kinds of wildlife. Late in the day, rabbits emerge from the brush and red-winged blackbirds roost in the many small willow trees that fill the area.
I’m not sure of the name of these small trees – next time I’ll have to take a field guide along and see if I can identify them.

This week I’ve been taking a break from watercolor to work in oil and to put into practice some of what I’ve been learning. This week I was fortunate to come into contact with a woman who was giving up oils for acrylic painting and selling her supplies. So my paint box is restocked (for the moment) and I have a few new colors to experiment with, too.

  1. I really like your oil paintings. I think oils are a bit scary, but you make it look easy!

  2. Ah ha. The oil paintings have been wonderful! This one has a great sense of movement. It must be a great ‘break’ for you.
    Lucky for us! hugs!

  3. Very rich colours. What an aroya? I haven’t used oils for a long time. Something makes my skin itch – maybe the oil paint or the linseel oil.

  4. What luck to be able to restock your paintbox. Oils seem more expensive to use than other paints so that’s great. Your oil painting is really progressing wonderfully. You are such an inspiration.
