Paul Ferney is a Northern California oil painter who does both small plein air sketches and larger works. We're intrigued by the seemingly dry, almost powdery texture that makes some of his oils look like pastels, while others are done with a thicker, much more liquid effect.
His blog contains a huge quantity of images, including photos, value studies and sketches.
