Liz #22, oil on linen board , Blueberry Barrens

I used acrylic medium to glue blue linen onto a board and put a layer of clear gesso over it. The gesso is roughly textured , so my plan for a limited palette and definitive brush strokes was abandoned as I scrubbed the paints into the linen. The texture made it easy to let some linen show through. I worked from a photo, but plan to spend some time en plein air as it is always so colorful there.

I love this painting, Liz. It's my favorite of all of your paintings so far. The feel of distance and sweeping open space is fantastic! (love the color palette too.)

Very peaceful! I get the feeling of grasses of different colors and the sunlight on the hill.
