More of Texas Hill Country Willow Loop

After taking many photos while touring the Texas Hill Country this spring, I have yet exhausted myself of painting versions of this photo. It could not get more inspiring than this unless I was there in person again and then I would probably just be too in awe to paint it! So I have taken away many memories and hope to revisit again next spring.

Here are several of my paintings I did from this photo. The first two are oil on panel coated with absorbent ground. The ground makes the oil absorb more into the canvas leaving a matt finish. The last one is an encaustic print on rice paper. It was my first print of this image but I will do more this week and make some adjustments along the way.
