Here's a 24 x 48 painting that was done the late sixties.

Mr. Hulett was moving in a kind of impressionistic direction, at this time. The oil and acrylic paintings were never created out in the field. He'd take lots of pictures with his 2 1/4" Rolleiflex, then project the resulting slides into a darkened closet off his studio, and wield the palette knife and brush to varying effect.

Addendum: Mrs. Hulett thinks the above could be a water-color. Since a lot of these paintings are from photographs, and my discernment is not..ahem... always spot on, she could be right.
