Horse Farm, Dusk
This is a smaller panel painting, 8 x 10 inches, on gessoed Masonite. The birch panels seem a softer, more receptive surface, but I was happy with how the mood of this turned out. I'm usually happy with the result if the process takes over and there is no frustration with the decision making....the 'flow' was good here. I'll do a few more on panels, and then return to paper. Paper remains the most receptive and intimate surface for me, but the panels do have certain advantages...the lack of any buckling due to vapour content, is one.
