These paintings have an underlay of Williamsburg Lead Oil Ground which gives the painting surface lots of texture. After the ground drys, the painting is created with oil paint.

Last month I visited my sister in San Luis Obispo county. Whenever I go down there, I always take my painting gear, searching for a plein air scene to paint. The attraction of this scene was the chalk white soil, the terra rosa leaves on the vines, and, of course, the Cypress trees on the hill. When I started painting in the morning, the temperature was 27 degrees F, and never did warm up, so I only painted for an hour and finished the painting from a photo when I returned home.
