More Thick Paint

"Sunny Breakfast"  6 x 6, oil on linen

I continue with the thick paint experiment.  I really like the process of painting this way.  It's a lot more fun than having to worry about lines and layers.  I liked the way this little study came out but the question is how it would stand up to being painted much larger (30 x 30).   I tried a couple of rainy day cityscape studies today and the alla prima thick paint technique did not work out so well.  The reflections and wet surfaces require more transparency than I was able to achieve with a loaded brush so I scraped my board a couple of times and will try again tomorrow.
