Rockford Arboretum Shadows Study

Arboretum Shadows Study, Oil on Canvas 8" x 10"

Last October, I created a plein air work at the Rockford Arboretum. Before I started my painting, I walked around and gathered some sketches of the park and the trees. My initial sketches allow me to test design options and discover a scene that will most spark my interest.

I reviewed designs  made that day and decided to play with one of the sketches. This one may offer some possibilities for a larger format.
