This week's art project found me breaking out the oils, it's been far too long since I have painted a traditional piece, it felt good. I was able to do this one at home due to the size (and the fact I use water soluble oils).

9x12 WS Oils on cradle panel. C&C welcome, I hope you enjoy. :)

Lovely colors.

It looks like a kelp bed on a bright day with calm, clear water. The non-kelp like colors just add to it's attractiveness IMHO. Nice.
