Plein Air Brandywine Valley 2017

Brandywine River - Wilmington, Delaware (sold)
Detail - 12 x 16 oil

Rockford Tower - Wilmington, Delaware (sold)
8 x 10 oil
Both paintings were from parks in Wilmington, Delaware.  The tower painting was painted completely with Royal Talens Cobra water-miscible oils, on a primed muslin surface over a wood panel.  The river painting was a combination of the water-miscible oils for the more distant elements and traditional oil paints to build up foreground details.  The panel for the river painting was MDF primed with gesso and then toned using a pale violet tint.
