Berm Along Farmington

Berm Along Farmington – Oil on Canvas – 18″ x 24″

Last summer, I created a plein air work of an abandoned farm house. The road afforded me an opportunity of capturing the back of the farmstead. I liked the finished product but felt that something was missing. It needed something more.

During the autumn and winter, I often looked at the plein air work and mulled ideas of how to improve the work. Early this spring, it occurred to me that the work could be improved by improvising. I altered the format from a 12″ x 24″ and went with this 18″ x 24″ format. I pushed the farmstead further in the background. This helped add linear and atmospheric perspective to the work. Much happier with this effort.
