"Moorecroft Exploration" is one of the few oil paintings done by Joe Enns has done that is not on canvas or paper. This piece was done on hardboard prepared with gesso. In this piece, Joe was also experimenting with using impasto instead of the mediums that he is used to. The impasto thickens the paint, making for a thicker paint layer in the end.
This piece was done from a photo taken by Joe at Moorecroft Regional Park in Nanoose Bay, BC. The park is near Joe's home and there was some spectacular weather occuring along the shoreline near sundown.
