The Deep Woods

Oil paint on a black ground ( a technique inspired from Bear Millers work). I have done many pastel paintings on black paper but never oil paint and it was perfect to achieve that darkness found in the deep woods. The locale of the painting is right behind Chapel Pond down a dirt path to some campsites that I recently discovered.  The paint is loose and thick and  larger than most of my work.
