Singleton Fall Reflections

I wanted to play in the oil with lots of paint and colour. After painting some pretty detailed subjects I needed something that was a bit less demanding. There was no intention to make the image photographic. Heavy rain fell making the extensive ice surfaces even more slick. Plein air painting is still a few days away. Until then I will play in the studio.
There is almost no "tooth" to the gessoed panels so I have to lay the paint on thick - wet on very wet on very-very wet. It is a fun change for me... painting with pools and swirls of oil and pure colour.

This one is really lovely, Phil - simply delicious! I like the sky showing mostly in the reflection.
