Break in the Fence

"Break in the Fence"   6" x 6"  Oil on Gessobord

Another picturesque view north of Taos. An old broken down fence, the rabbit brush overtaking the area.
In my quest to loosen up my paintings I've been starting them with the palette knife, then working some areas with a brush. Seems to be helping.
I'm also working on keeping the background pushed back with value and little detail, softer edges. Then pushing the chroma up front, adding texture to the strokes.
Seems to be helping. Hardest part is stopping. Arghh
