A winding road with trees in bright fall color against a nearby hillside in this painting based on the Daily Paintworks weekly challenge: the German Landscape. Photo by C. Marine. I was drawn to this challenge because I love painting roads!

I made many alterations from the original photo for this painting, including switching the palette to a fall color theme rather than the summer greens in the reference.

TITLE: "Travels Abroad #2"
SIZE: 6x6 inches
MEDIUM: oil on wood panel

Painting is alla prima (single session, wet-on-wet).

This painting is on a hand-made panel from my studio: I start with a 1/4" lightweight plywood composite board (similar to Luan panels). Two coats of a high-quality alkyd (oil) primer are applied to the smooth side of the board, which also acts as a sizer (sealing the wood to prevent leaching of any acids in the wood). Sides are filled with putty and sanded smooth to allow for non-framed table-top display, if desired. The back is sealed with a water-based polyurethane to provide additional protection and durability.

This painting will be varnished upon purchase. It ships unframed, via USPS Priority or First Class mail, fully insured.
