This little painting is the first from the series entitled The Painted Etude: A Series in Exercises
to be offered for sale.
"After the Rain" (Etude #1) by Keith Bond, oil on linen board, 4 x 5 inches, $150
To paint this exercise, I attatched a two foot stick to the end of a #6 long filbert brush and painted with my arm extended. This put me several feet away while I painted. This exercise was designed to prevent me from attempting any detail. I was forced to simplify and use the power of suggestion. With little or limited control there are many wonderful 'accidentals' in this piece.
