Oil on panel
Some paintings fight you every step of the way. Others grab you by the arm and pull you along, whether you're ready to follow or not. That was the case with this one. If you ask me how long it took to paint it, I'd have to say a couple of hours and more than three years and countless hours of frustration, mistakes, and wipeouts. I left the paint fairly thin, partially because I liked the zig-zag brushstrokes of the road and partially because I didn't think I could improve it with thicker paint. I did add a couple of coats of glossy varnish to give it a glass-like finish.
