These landscapes, although small, were a lot of fun for me to paint. Traveling around Pittsburgh, discovering new areas and places, I brought my small oil kit with me and did short small paintings of the various places I visited. The colors are particularly appealing to me because of the versatility one city can have. From green hills, to and old iron mill, Pittsburgh includes so many beautiful places. These pieces were a new experience for me. I had not had a whole lot of experience with oils and I wanted to get to know the texture and feel before committing to a long term piece. These were just small palette knife pieces that I love for their color, versatility, and rough detail.
