April on Wheeler

April on Wheeler – Oil on Canvas Panel – 8″ x 16″

Late April, nice weather and a chance to get out to paint. Spring is tough. The bright, fresh “green” can be overwhelming. The implementation of warm colors is necessary to get the landscape painting work.

These paintings sprang from a small plein air sketch. When I created the plein air sketch, I restricted myself to a two hour time limit. As you can see, the layout of the buildings and foreground left me no time to add sky.

A few weeks earlier, I came across this scene and created a work that was 11″ x 14″. That was late summer. Now that the colors are changing, I came back. I felt that the scene could work well in a 1:2 format.  Beside the format design, I also enjoyed capturing the colors of early autumn. Hope to get back here when the trees are changing.
