Sunset @ Reafield Farm Rd. Preparations are in full swing!

79  F  clear with large clouds.
I had to get out to paint today.....

Money shot

#350 Reafield Farm Rd.

11 x 14









The sun was setting, my favorite is to see the world back lit, and I got that. I started at about 6:00













This is the stage where there is a bit of confusion.....














I've been doing a bunch of "other things" so i can say I got them done before my trip, it's less than 2 weeks, and I'm also getting ready, if I can!


By this time the light is really starting to change, but I feel I have a handle on it and what I wanted  to do,  I couldn't chase it at this point, but I had enough to go on.





Very close......















Notice how different the color is in these photos. This one is too blue.















There are scenes like this, and they just draw you in......














A few cars came by.....















My pallet is including black, although I'm mixing a bit of ultramarine in with it......



















These panels are for my trip to Germany, I'm useing 1/8th inch baltic birch plywood, it's really light, I'll have 24 of these and a lot of other surfaces as well..... I'm also making some for here now, and my return, because I'm really almost out....
















Nice!

I'll show more of my preparations as they happen......
