"Over the Bar II" (sold)

Oil on Board

It's been awhile!! I am working hard on the illustration project, but managing to get a little painting in, also. This one is "version #2" of my previous post. I just never was quite happy with that painting. A big part of the problem was the oiling out--I'm not quite sure what to do with that, but really don't like it!! I used a different medium with this painting--Winsor & Newton "Artists' Painting Medium" that was described as good for that problem. It seemed to help keep the paint looking fresh and moist. I'd be VERY interested in hearing how other painters deal with this issue!
