Featherbed Lane

This large landscape features dense textures of grass in the foreground, a stream, and distant treeline.

Featherbed Lane. 24x20, oil on linen. 2014.

Although I've been planning this painting for a long time, the actual painting part went very quickly: I started this last weekend and, after letting it dry for a week, I did the finishing touches today.

In preparation, I did a few pencil scribbles, followed by a fairly decent sized study, I started the final painting with a transparent monochrome block in and let it dry before proceeding with the final layers.

This painting will be headed for The Cooley Gallery at the end of August.
