Morning Mist

Morning sun streaming through a heavy mist makes
visual alterations to the landscape around us.
Adding dimension here and taking away there until
it sometimes feels as though we have been
transported to a different place.
Sounds are also affected, at times more intense
and muffled at others. Different hues of colour
emerge to intensify the changes to the landscape.
Oil on canvas 6 x 8.
Comments always welcomed.
And light has no weight,
Yet one is lifted on its flood,
Swept high,
Running up white-golden light shafts,
As if one were as weightless as light itself,
All gold and white and light.
(Lawren Harris)

Great atmospheric feeling here, Jeffrey. And it's interesting that you are using water-mixable oils. I've never tried them. Looks that they work really well for you!

Thanks Vicki! I am really having a lot of fun with the oils and enjoy almost everything about them, except for that long drying time once your done! Except for the water part they are virtually the same as traditional oils and of course the clean up.

I SO don't get water mixable/soluble oils. Seems an oxymoron.
I am still using regular oils and paint thinner, odorless, though it's not.
This is a beautiful painting.

Thanks Mary, and yes it does seem an oxymoron. But it is lovely stuff.

"Contre jour", the lighting...very appealing hues.
