Pheasant Branch Outing

Changing the painting date to Wednesday seemed to work out well.  Here's a backlit painting I did at Pheasant Branch and then during the rainy day today, I worked on it more at home.  Maybe I over did the dramatic cloud lighting thing but ... hey, I'm trying to compensate for my normal tendencies towards sutble, muted colors (i.e. sometimes "drab").  I'll eventually get that right balance which seems to be what painting is mostly all about.  I'll pick a September painting date soon.   Tom


  1. Wow, Tom - it looks really great & I think you solved the foreground problem. Actually the painting looks even better in real life than on this site.

  2. Tom, love the sky. Not overdone, good, eye-catching drama. Well done!
