Painted Turtle

Painted Turtle,   Oil, 12" X 16"
These last few days I have felt like this turtle. That is OK because we certainly can use the rain. I went out in the rain and took several photos down around Homestake Lake. It was quite nice being out there. The ducks did not like their photos taken; they swim away before you even get near them.

I have been slowly switching to Cobra water soluble oil paints. I really like working with them especially with my sensitivity to chemicals/solvents. For transparency and thinning I use Gamblin Solvent-Free Gel.
