This is a collection of close up views of the detail in the palette knife work on my recent paintings.  I will eventually either link to or unite them on a page with the painting they came from.  Plein air paintings, as a general rule, are to be viewed at a bit of a distance.  But often I find myself deeply absorbed in the little accidents / miracles that happen up close, in the textured surface.
This portion of the site may take a bit longer to fill, as I do not at present have a camera equipped to capture the detail that I see...



This is from I think the first painting I did in January 2013.  The painting is of a beach rose bush (with dark red berries) at the edge of a swollen tidal marsh.  I spotted this shadow figure (blackish mass in the right hand side foreground) in a series of close ups I took of the bracken in the foreground.  It looked to me like a villain out of a Scooby Doo cartoon, but then my friend Maura pointed out it looks just like Miss Clavell from the Madeline books.
