”COLOSSUS” by Kim VanDerHoek.

12 X 16 inch Oil Painting on canvas board.

After many weeks indoors with tissues, I have finally been out painting! My soul has really missed being outside, looking at an amazing view and doing my best to translate it onto canvas.

This time I thought I would work larger. Painting on location (en Plein Air) has many challenges and often painters choose to paint smaller canvases because time is an issue. It takes much less time to paint a 5 X 7 versus a 12 X 16. I am pleased with how this one turned out and I hope you like it!
