Dr. Browns Lane, Cambridge, NY., yesterday

35  F  cloudy, calm.

I've wanted to find a way to paint in the valley going west out of town, but not on State Rt. 372, (it moves way too fast!)  so I tried Dr. Brown ln. Nice








 Dead end, dirt, very little traffic!










I've been reading a blog by Stapleton Kearns, a great wealth of knowledge on painting, I'll link it if I can. here I tried to  practice a few ideas; gathering the lights and the darks separately,  using hot and cold colors adjacent to each other, and working on composition.






I was actually happy with the results, painting with the same pallet in similar surroundings day after day does in fact make it easier to get close to the color I'm looking for.
