Along Pierce - Study: Oil on Canvas Panel 8" x 6"

Along Pierce – Study: Oil on Canvas Panel 8″ x 6″

I finished a larger painting and still had a couple hours left in the afternoon. I decided to work a small painting with the time left. After searching through a few a few photographs and not finding inspiration, I rummaged through a few of my “not quite successful” plein air paintings.

I came across a painting created at Rock Cut State Park a couple of years ago. I did not like the design and it was too green. It occurred to me that if I cropped the work to a horizontal format and added more earth tone to the grasses, it might work.

Finished the work before dinner. Fun exercise.
