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-paintingĀ  showing through.

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

McGregor Road, Oil on Canvas 8" x 10"

Created this painting from a sketch made during the Fields Project. Utilized Transparent Red Oxide to sketch the scene and establish values in select portions of the painting. Played the red/green complementary range.
