Graves Branch

Did this one today. A little cold out, about 30 degrees, but not too bad. I named it after my sister since I can't find the real name of the little stream that empties into Little Renox Creek, and it's on her property.

I used the style Stapleton Kearns calls "colored rice" on this one. I'm liking it more and more. Including a close-up of one area of the painting to show the varied brushstrokes.

16" x 20", oil on linen panel

The "colored rice" technique works very well for this scene.
