"At Glen Eyrie Castle"

I'm back. After a long hiatus where I got my son ready for school and went to Colorado to attend American Artists first Weekend with the Masters" event. This painting, an 8" x 8" oil on linen/panel was an exercise that Kevin MacPherson wanted all of his workshop attendees to do. Namely, use Portland Grey Light to for the lights and any other color we wanted for the mid-tones and darks. The result is a painting that appears to be a snow scene even though I painted it in early September. I wrapped it in cellophane and tested color over the grey areas but it weakened the overall effect so I left it as is.
