Ocean View

Ocean View Oil Painting 9X12  on Arches Oil Painting Paper $100

Day 28 of the 30 Day painting challenge.

Today my challenge was to do a painting without yellow or orange in it.  Didn't quite make it but almost.  I had to put a touch of transparent orange along the shore.

The painting was done on Arches Paper made specifically for oil paint.  No gesso required.  This is my first time using this paper.  It is awesome.  It has a unique smooth surface to paint on.  When the painting is dry it can be framed as you would any other painting.  You would just need a backing for it.  Standard size so no problem finding a frame for it.

The paint is THICK.  The whole thing was painted with a palette knife.

Blessings for a great day.
