ABOUT THIS PAINTING: This is another painting that was done as a demonstration for other artists during a Plein Air Workshop I taught recently.

Nature cast a spotlight briefly on the distant trees and I couldn’t resist. Before the lighting conditions could change I quickly blocked in the composition to capture these effects. It was a gray day with overcast skies and softened colors but this natural spotlight brought magic to the scene.

Once I had the basic composition established I allowed myself to slow down and complete the painting with all the subtleties I liked so much about the scene. I was very pleased with the results.

I thought it might also be interesting to see a photo of the actual site for comparison with my interpretation so I shot a photo as I painted this.

Thanks for looking
