Oak Ridge Morn #1; Oil on Canvas 18″ x 24″

During a trip through Oak Ridge Forest Preserve, I came across this scene. Made a quick sketch and took a photograph. A few weeks later, I decided to create this work. Worked well. I utilized a loose wash of Transparent Red Oxide in the grassy areas. It made a nice base for the mature vegetation and a complement to the green grasses. I liked the effect enough that the worn, brown areas in the path is the under-painting  showing through.

As I completed this painting, I  decided to take the design larger with a few modifications.
