Although, in the dog days of summer, for some reason, I got to thinking about the upcoming season. The autumn in the Midwest. Decided to play with this idea of looking up the limbs of trees. An interesting perspective.

Autumn Leaves 1, Oil on Canvas

Autumn Leaves 1, Oil on Canvas 8" x 10"

Ran some errands in the morning. By the time that I got into the studio that afternoon, I did not have a lot of time available. I had a class to teach in the evening. So rather than start a larger painting, I decided to grab a small canvas and play with an idea. I used a photo and cropped the scene to focus just on the foliage. Fun little play. Went fast. I finished this painting, cleaned up, ate a quick dinner and got to class early.

June Morn at Chapel Road, Oil on Canvas 12" x 24"

I created this painting in my studio, using sketches created in between rains during the Fields Project.

After doing an initial oil sketch on my canvas, I put a light wash of Alizarin Crimson in the sky. I love the way that the essence of the crimson comes through the body paint used in the sky. Works well with the greens of the foliage.
