Holy Grail, day 2

Mid day, before the rain, 80 +  F

This was the painting on duel Hollow Rd. after about 2 more hours on-site yesterday.  I brought it back and worked on it a bit last night, but I think it needs more, it's just not where I want it to be, but it's moving along.

I'm having a hard time trying to "unify"  it just might be in my own head.  I'm also not sure of the overall tone of the painting, I think it should be a but darker...


  1. Hey I have painted that composition...really, did you stop on the same road? The composition and location are beautiful but that green is so hard to keep from flattening out. You've already done better, mine was watercolor and I got tangled up in a hundred reflected lights in the riffle water in the foreground. Cant wait to see it finished!

    1. Thanks Elissa, This is around the corner from where I live in cambridge, N.Y. I've been working on it in my shop, trying to push it in the direction I want it to go, It's drying as I type. I'm struggling with it right now so I'd welcome someone with a fresh eye to look at it, I'll post it soon. Matt
