Toy Train

4"x6" oil on board. Another pilfered toy from the house. What can I say, it's an addiction. And no, I shall not seek counseling, thank you very much. Not much to say about the painting other than the fact that small areas of the red and green on the little train are pigments straight from the tube. As a practice, I do not use paint straight from the tube all that much. I will, on occasion, glop some straight pigment right onto a canvas, smear it around a bit to see what happens, basically mixing directly on a painting. I do not condone or encourage this practice, I am just saying that I am insane enough to do it (it's fun - no nasty letters, please).
