Plein Air Winter Landscape- the Back Twenty


















8"x 10" oil

Fingers are still unthawing as I type.
The sun was gorgeous and inviting; the
contrasts of winter alluring, but the
chill still there.

This is last light...which means you
have to push the paint pretty quick to
get a sense of the encounter down. Of
course, hard to ever do justice to this
elusive beauty nature adorns.

Used a limited palette over a reddish
undertone...yellow-orange the dominant
color with blue and violet as the split
complementaries.

Hi Larry,

Are we going to see one of those evergreens with lights and Chrismas ornaments on them?

Merry Christmas (Happy Holidays) to you and your family and thank you for your inspiration!

May I start painting again in 2007 instead of just visiting everyones blogs!!!
