Pend Oreille Paintings

This past January I went to Lake Pend Oreille in Idaho with friends and family on a ski trip.   It was a beautiful weekend and I quickly painted these two images while we were hanging out at the cabin.

Color Studies

Inspired by Nathan Fowkes‘ visit to Big Fish Games in Dec ’10, I started doing a few color studies out my back window.  Though Nathan uses watercolors, my medium of choice for these was oil.  I completed each of these studies within an hour and a half, some quicker than others.  I hope to find time to continue with these.  They are great ways to stay in tune with my palette and mixing colors.
