oil on archival board (Gessobord) 6″ x 6″ x 1/8″

I used Gamblin’s Portland greys (light, medium and dark) and Chromatic Black. The Ampersand gesso board is sometimes lightly brushed with Gamsol solvent before starting the painting. I’m using fine sable hair brushes (and sometimes my fingers) for these little paintings.
This little monochrome painting from yesterday is based on an Oahu hike my husband and I took this past winter. I’ve included the reference photo this time and the link to my previous post on this hike where you can see the summit views.
I could have kept working on the painting, but decided I liked the ambiguity and stopped. No clear view of the trail ahead.
There are muskrats beneath these waters. I’ve seen them, but they are elusive creatures!
