8x5 Oil Painting GARY GARRETT DEMO - - Channel marker at Little Jetties - In Mid October, the First Coast Plein Air Painters had our paint out at the Little Jetties (Mayport Florida) where the St. Johns River meets the Intracoastal Waterway, just west of the Mayport Naval Station. It was beautiful! The wire-grass was in full pink/burgundy blooms. I painted a12x16 acrylic there and shot 100+ photos.

This 8x5 inch oil fine-grained canvas panel painting is from one of those photos looking west. My palette is WHITE-CAD YELLOW LIGHT & MEDIUM - CAD RED - CRIMSON - ULTRAMARINE BLUE -PAYNE'S GREY & WHITE. My medium is DRYING LINSEED OIL & LIQUIN IMPASTO gel. All paints & mediums are Winsor & Newton. The undercoat is painted with brushes and paper towels, the color coat is painted with a small palette knife.
