Pond Study

Pond Study Oil on Board 8 x 10
I've done three studies for a large format painting I'm currently working on, 48 x 60 in, this oil, a pastel and a small pencil sketch.  I don't usually go to this extent but it has been helpful, although I am now deviating a bit from the original idea.  Its good to have something to go back to, the original idea and inspiration.
