|Morning Lake( 5x7 : oil on Arches oil paper)|
I remember that I woke up early in the morning to return to this lake for strolling and taking some photos a couple of weeks before leaving for CA. The surface is paper for oil and
this is first experiment on paper with oil. It does not smooth for brush stroke comparing to gessoboard which is so slick and sometimes and it is uncontrollable. For under-color on this paper, I should wait for it completely dry before I start contour line.
I think I am lingering on winter images for a while. Next few days, probably my heart will remain onto winter, cool solitary and moody scene. Winter is short and it passes by quickly. While I can, I should hold and hanging with winter memory.
As I know it will not be that long before I will be in summer mode for CA scene quite a long season.
