#269 Akamai Pond 1

There is a name for this pond behind Akamai Art In Port Townsend, but I'm not sure what it is.  Anyway, it was a nice little spot to do a paint-out organized by Akamai, followed by a Gamblin product desrciption by Scott Gellatly.  This was the first oil painting I've done in almost a year- instead of doing the monochromatic underpainting, I just tried to think a few minutes before putting in the dark masses at the beginning.  It made me much more careful than usual.  Oil on panel, 8" x 10".
