plein air at the field

Finally I returned to my field love.  I had my plan firmly in mind and have had it there for over three weeks. When I arrived at the time noted on my sketches the light was very different. (Shows how quickly the light changes at this time of year.) The sun had barely crept over the trees...still it was beautiful. I painted the light that was present and plan to use the sketches and plein air piece to work in the studio. I simply can't wait to see the autumn light on this very special place.

On another note, I want to thank everyone, again, for all their support and input as I wrestle with my blogging decision. I also want to send a special thank you to all my blogger friends who emailed me very personal notes. I will answer each one in time.  You are all wonderful!

There's a lovely light and airy feel to the colours in this one and I like the diagonals of perspective. What are the dimensions please? I definately felt an autumn nip here this morning, not long now.

I think the composition and the value relationships work really well! Great foundation to build on, I can't wait to see what you'll make with that!

The net ate my comment. If it didn't go through, I want you to know this is my all time fave, or on the short list.

Your art is excellent, and this is evidence.

Hi Lisa,
The dimensions are about 8x10. It was a scrap of wallis paper i had in the paper box in my car...or rolling art cave. Thank you about the light!

Hi Nika,
I have already set up the underpainting. We will see. Thanks!

Hi Casey, Wow that is the highest form of praise! I am blushing!!!
Thank you. Sorry about that nasty net eating your first comment.
