Quick Studies

5"x7" Oil on panel
These small five inch by seven inch panels are great formats for field sketches.
They really help simplify the forms and keep me from getting hung up with unnecessary details. Using a #6 filbert brush and just painting the bold patterns and simple shapes.

5"x7" Oil on Panel

On this small scale a few color masses, can suggest form and structure.
And produce a quick study with an illusion of reality.

Enjoy Jim.
