Approaching Storm

Approaching Storm
A beautiful morning but there is a threat of some windy weather on the way.  I gathered up my painting box and headed out with the dogs to a spot on the east side of the settlement that overlooks the lake northwards.  The temperature is hovering around minus 3 Celsius which is great for painting out of doors.  I have come to enjoy the way my paint gets a bit stiff outside as it makes for some nice texture, which I like immensely.  This piece is 8 x 10 inches and is an oil on masonite, primed with ochre over an acrylic modeling paste base.
