Here is where I ended up today, I went out late to try and catch some of that delicious evening light.
#302 Plains Rd.
8 x 10
Here is tonight's scene, as it looked at the end of the 1 hr. session,the shadows had grown quite a bit.
This is Plains rd. I've never painted here, the beauty is that in the plain, you can see the hills.
I broke two rules, well bent one and the other should be a rule, too much real estate for the size and never have an unbroken line across the horizon, but I defer to my disclaimer about breaking any rules anytime I want.
I'm also on a purist kick and wish it would end, I feel like I reverted to my first start back self, but compulsion reveals itself in it's own time.
The thing with this composition is that it's a sandwich, I love sandwiches, but.....
Just about it for this painting, i thought the foreground with all that green would be a challenge to make recede and I was right.
Here's the sight-size shot, the money shot was not view-able.
I started to mark my spot by sticking a brush into the ground.
Why haven't I painted from this spot?
