Abandoned Fence

This old fencing is just off the Clark/Boas Trail in Wildcat Canyon Regional Park. We went up the trail from Clark Road off of San Pablo Dam Road in El Sobrante. I painted the whole background with a wash of perm. Or. and Q. gold, painting around the fence. Then when that was dry I went over it with another wash of Q. Gold and Phthalo Green yellow shade adding in some burnt orange and burnt scarlet. I think this might be the first, or one of the few paintings that I have done without a sky. I used a large round #30 for the wash. I have been experimenting with new brushes. I only used two brushes: the big one and a #8 round with a good point.

  1. Your work is showing more contrast and interesting colors. Your compositions, as always, are great. I like the green you achieved here, it is new and different.
