Plein Air – Rock Cut

November 9, 2010

Pier Path, Oil on Canvas 12" x 16"

The first of November brought a good day to paint. Sunny, clear and not too cold. I ventured to Rock Cut. I had hoped to capture a scene which I witnessed on my trip here a little over a week earlier. However, recent wind storms took away more leaves and color than I had anticipated. The scene just didn’t spark my interest. I drove further into the park and found a cooperative scene. There is a small spot where I could park my car and capture a scene of a path which leads to a fishing pier. I loved the colors which were still present and the way which the light cast shadows across the path.

My spot was near the main drive. Not much traffic today. A few of the cars slowed down to take a look at the strange sight of an artist at work. A couple hikers stopped for a moment to take a look, from about forty yards away. Yep. Worked in relative solitude and worked quickly. It was a good day to paint.
