These are three from the weekend. We spent it with our friend Diana at the her house near Pine Plains NY. She has a deck on the bank of this creek. Later we grilled dinner and watched the light fade, right in this spot
I am really enjoying working fast and loose and being able to work closer and closer to dawn and dusk

WOW, Dan! I've just been catching up with you and reading over your past several posts. This super-huge canvas project is so inspiring. I look forward to seeing how it progresses - thanks for sharing your process.

Quick question -- I don't work in gouache or acrylic but have been wanting to experiment with both on paper. What sort of paper do you recommend? Do you prep it at all? Thanks again!
