Coastal, 24" x 48" oil on canvas
This is my first "larger" oil painting since beginning with oil.   I have begun a new process of doing a mini painting first and then redoing in large format, as the slow drying time of oil requires a different approach than acrylic for me anyway.  Though of course going small to large is never that simple..one cannot just copy there own work., each piece requires a completely fresh approach.  ahh..the challenges of painting. 
Also if any oil painters out there could recommend a good air purifyer that would be great.  I paint next to a wide open window and fan.  But it is cold and still damp out still and kind of unpleasant.
