"Shadow Study"

5" x 7"

Oil on panel

This was my last painting of the day. I started this one with the knowledge that it was getting late and I probably wouldn't finish it, so I worked fast, trying to get as much on the panel as I could before everything was lost in shadows. When I got home, I was pretty pleased with it and I decided to call it finished. Sometimes trying to get to a more "finished" state, it's easy to cover up what made the painting fresh and bold in the first place.
