Ross Island Sand and Gravel
I was asked to teach a watercolor class on the 2nd and I agreed. Then I thought 'oh no, I hardly even paint with watercolor these days'! So I did this last night for the exercise. No sooner had I begun and I was squeezing out acrylics onto the painting. I`m incapable of traditional transparent technique it seems. That`s fine, I often hear my oil paintings look like watercolors.
The subject is a mining operation on the east bank of the Willamette River and is particularly beautiful in the fog.
