11 by 14 Oil on canvas. I started in sunlight, but as the day progressed the clouds came and I finished when the first rain drops started to fall. I noticed as the sky was overcast the colors in the landscape where more pronounced, i am looking forward to my next excursion.
The sunset came a little too fast for me, from yellow to gorgeous purple, I guess next time I'll be ready, this was painted on Mt. David overlooking the town of Cottage Grove, about 10 Minutes from our home.
Thursday was a beautiful sunny day and I was looking for a location to paint, could not come up with any ideas, so I stopped at a Rail To Trail, bike park and found this little tree as a focal point to paint.
This interesting variety of colors in the trees, made me set up the easel at Bakers Bay, but after 20 minutes of painting, the rain came, in a rather heavy way and I got out of there. Came back today to see if the leaves where still on the tree and finished the painting.
Yvonne, George and I took advantage of a beautiful cool fall morning(feels like fall) to paint Plain Air and on the way we spotted a nice pumpkin patch, I guess I have to come back. This is a 11 by 14 oil.
Spend the afternoon at Rujada Park, about a 40 minute Drive from home, a wonderful location and the temperature was about 70F in the shade, subject was great but again could not find the right colors and values, but I won't give up.
