Token Creek: Painting from May 6th outing

Here's my painting from the May 6th outing.  About 90% of this was done plein air, with some final touches done in my studio. [8"x10", oil on canvas panel]   Had a great time!

  1. Really lovely painting. Makes me want to go back there soon.

  2. Really nice atmosphere to this painting. I suspect you invented that cloud shadow in the right side foreground. It helps the composition.

  3. Thanks, Pat and Tom!

    Yes, Tom, you are right about the shadow. When I first set up, it was pretty early and there were some tree shadows from the right, but those quickly disappeared as the sun got higher. When I got home, it seemed something was missing in the front foreground, so I decided to take some 'artistic license' with the composition.

    Now I just need to figure out a way to take better photos of my paintings - notice quite a bit of glare on the top left side.
