Docks in Rain - oil on panel, 9 x 12 inches

Click here to purchase. Here's another painted from the car with the paintbox in my lap. It was pouring rain the whole time and I kept the windshield wipers going so I could see what I was doing.

I set out my palette with the 11-12 paints I normally use but only ended up painting with a couple, since things were so gray. Nearly the whole thing was painted with mixes of burnt sienna (brown) and viridian (green), swinging the color mixtures toward one or the other of those, and of course mixing with a lot of white in places. The narrow range of colors and values gives a kind of tonalist look.
I really loaded the paint on thick in places.
