2nd plein air--done Sunday. I got almost as much mud on my canvas as I had on my boots !!! I haven't been using earth colors too much in the studio lately--I forgot what a muddy mess they make if you're not careful with them. Anyway here it is--9 x 12 oil.

Thanks Linda, Diane, Robert !
Your encouragment is very appreciated. Have a still life almost done but after the fast and loose landscapes, it seems laborious. LOL

Phyllis, I like the colours you have used. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif I like how most of the warm colours are in the foreround and most of the cool colours are in the background. I especially like how you did the trees. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

As good as in-studio painters can be, you can almost tell a piece painted on location. Such a natural light that bathes over the whole area, naturally pulling a common color scheme upon all the masses and objects.

This is very appealing, has a lot of nice subtleties of what I imagine was a bright yet nearly overcast day. Nice job!

It was in fact a sunny day but, by the time I got there and got set up, the sun had gone down. It was still bright but no shadows.

Thanks everybody. I didn't get out this past weekend--it was raining a bit and I was tired. Now with daylight savings time, I'm hoping for maybe an evening during the week.(may have to give up my daily dose of wetcanvas.com to do it though).
