A Gallery of Earlier Oil Landscapes
Philip Koch, Edge of the Forest, oil on panel, 14 x 21", 1987
I recently started a project of looking through images of my paintings from some years ago. Have been really enjoying getting reacquainted with these old friends!
At that time I was doing an enormous amout of painting out on location in oil. My trusty French easel went everywhere with me. Quite a few of these smaller directly painted outdoor oils served as the basis for my larger scale studio work. Here's a group of paintings, some done outdoors, some in the studio from the '80's and early '90's.
