French Street Oil Painting, Daily Painting by Chris Hobel

What i love about oils                  8x8" French Street scene
This week Ive been painting more, I think its the cooler weather plus Ive been  thinking about the  beautiful  old romantic street scenes of italy and france, here is one of them........
Ive been using my box of 8x8" canvases. I just uploaded it on FAA to sell as a print also.  More and more Im enjoying painting with oil rather than acrylic, I just like the feel of them and the flexibility and a big plus is that they dry slowly and dont change colour

Oil Painting View from Cooroy Mountain by Chris Hobel

Oil Painting View from Cooroy Mountain by Chris Hobel
8x10 inches oil on stretched canvas
I painted this from a photo taken on a recent morning walk up Cooroy Mountain, the home of Cooroy Spring water. Pretty pleased with the result. This painting is currently for sale at Affordable on Elizabeth Kenilworth

A good painting day

I love colour and have just stumbled upon a wonderful abstract landscape American colourist Wolf Kahn,
The best thing to do today is paint, windy rainy and cool... I love the cool part after a long summer . Back into the palette knife mode and thick paint,
