"Winslow Park" - September Painting Giveaway

Winslow Park, in Freeport, is one of the nicest campgrounds I have seen. Suzanne and I painted there today and it was just beautiful, with a cool ocean breeze and plenty of gorgeous sunshine. I did this painting on a gatorboard panel primed with orange acrylic that Suzanne had made. It's very slick and I let lots of the orange show through (though maybe not as much as the photo shows). I think it was Lois Griffel who said that you can never make a painting brighter than the underpainting. I think there is something to that! "Winslow Park" is a 6"X6" oil.
