Painting on Location
in acrylics.

I would like to thank Mr. Will McThewson for sending me a photo of my painting Oluwalu Rocks, #530,
painted on 12-04-91 in acrylics on panel.

Over half of my paintings got away unphotographed.

This is my acrylic palette, these detail images were taken from the painting.
This painting is alla prima, painted on location in one setting.
I get pleasure from using pure colors and making pure oppositions.
I also like leaving or painting in a little white to complement real darks.
