Approaching Storm 6x6 inch oil and wax on gessoboard
This is another painting from my painting trip to Washington Island in
Door County, Wisconsin. I mixed my oil paint with Dorland's wax medium
and applied it with a knife. I like the atmospheric effect the knife
achieved for both the water and sky. A storm was coming, but as
quickly as it formed, it dissipated without any rain. On the island the
weather changes very quickly. We painted on location with our cars not
far from us so we could make the dash to cover if necessary!!
