Rocks, Jamestown

Oil on panel, 8" x 10"
I think painting rocks is an art in itself. You don't want to paint every fissure, but you have to paint enough to make the structure convincing and interesting. And, what color ARE they, anyhow? Gray, brown, blue, pink? I'll have to go back and try again with this scene.

Your comment is very relevant. John Ruskin used to say:'It is true that I know a thing or two about rocks and clouds, I am very glad I do'. Rocks are indeed a difficult subject, and you succeed masterly!
I enjoy your blog very much. Your paintings are so fresh, beautiful and strong. I like your skill in colours.
I do myself some drawings and would be pleased to invite you to visit my art blog:
