Another nice one!.. great perspective here!... And you know... I'm not sure what is it, but something is slightly different in those your last paintings. I can not figure it out yet, but I like it even better then before.

Thank you Tatiana. I think the difference is the under painting. I am using an oil wash and then try very, very hard to not cover all of the under painting. I think the paintings look richer with this oil underneath.

Beautiful painting, Donna. Love seeing it--seems so rich with color. I also believe there is a shift in your work, and its very nice--maybe stronger, maybe that s the color I sm seeing---but its nice stuff!! Really like both of these new pieces.

Thank you Ida, I am pretty excited about this new method. Instead of going for bold color and intensity, the oil under painting is causing a richness that I like and more with less.
