Rappahannock River Morning

I really like varying the texture and blending which comes from palette knife and good old brush work. I focused on keeping the big shapes I had initially laid in and worked with warm and cool grays to form a circular path for the eye.  As we've had lots of gray days here lately, I didn't have to stretch my imagination to conceive colors! I am liking my latest efforts at mixing grays, finding that it is a wonderful way of getting to know my colors.  If anyone has their own technique for mixing grays, please feel free to share! This is a 14 x 18 oil on linen — C + C are welcomed!

About Christina Evans


I was born in New Jersey, my family moved to California when I was young and now I am living the country life in Spotsylvania, Virginia with my own family.  I paint in an impressionistic style and the subject of my work is always light and the mood associated with it.  I use photographs, sketches and memory to capture the light and shadows and the essence of a particular place.   With a supportive husband and two children who love to paint along with me, I have the wonderful opportunity to pursue what I love to do.  I appreciate all feedback on this site,  I think that is the best way to keep learning and improving.
