Smith Rock, Crooked River, 18" x 24"
One of my favorite subjects, the magnificent jumble of Smith Rock (should be rocks) in Terrebonne, with the Crooked River deep below. I've painted there plein air and from photos. Two acrylic paintings done from this photo were sold and I miss them, so I wanted to paint it again in oil, larger than usual. Painting large is different from painting small, it's not just about using a bigger brush! I took my time on this canvas, adding layers, making changes, moving rocks...Someday a super zealous hiker may tell me that I missed a rock, but it's a painting, not a map!
