Along Montague – Plein Air; Oil on Canvas Panel 10″ x 8″

I was excited to find out that my friends from Oregon had arranged for a plein air session that was on the outskirts of Rockford. Figured I better make this event.

I was the first to arrive. It was a home with some acreage surrounded by corn fields. Nothing of particular interest at the front. I made my way to the back yard. The woods at the back of the property caught my attention. Made sketches of several possible designs and settled on this one.

I was the first to start painting. A rarity among our group. It was a bit more intricate than I had anticipated, though it was not what, in my opinion, difficult. This work seemed to paint itself. Effortless…somewhat.

Finished this painting and started another, smaller work before breaking for lunch.
