My friend Jon and I have great conversations and here is a demo I did for him to explain how I am playing with texture. The next painting will show the sequence.

Plein Air at REd Rocks

Red Rocks 11x14 oil
Painting with friends at Red Rocks. It was a cold morning, 28 deg, but with in an hour it warmed up enough, 45- 50, to take off our coats. The wind pushed us to take shelter next to the rocks by the tunnel. There was snow melting and falling behind up to offer a zen sound to paint by.
Good day in CO.

textured MDF and canvas

 Terraplane Blue 18x24 oil on textured MDF
Hope On The Horizon 24x30 oil on canvas
What a gas it is to get inspired on the first stroke of a knife. The Terraplane Blue was started with a heavy texture of gesso (acrylic primer) and then palette knife through out. yum. Hope on the Horizon was on canvas so I didn't use a lot of texture. So the comparison was leaving me with wanting to do more texture work. Now to find panels and frames. Always a challenge some where. lol
