Trio 12X16 Oil on Canvas $210

This painting is from my trip to Sun Peaks.  Gorgeous sunny day, good company, awesome shadows. Loved it.

There is a lot of palette knife work.  I started with pumice gel for the tree trunks to give the texture in case the paint wouldn't do it.  Then the paint didn't absorb into the pumice that well so I got out my trusty palette knife. So it's good and thick.  This was the first time that I used water soluble oil paint. It is a good brand and I couldn't tell the difference.  I still used my odorless mineral spirits which I
didn't think would hurt.
