Sheilds Road

57  mostly sunny
Here is the money shot from today, it's a bit dark, but that's what happens this time of day.

#401 Shields Rd.

11 x 14

I've been wanting to paint in this area for a while, it's just beautiful, in every direction.

Sky and road.

I haven't been doing huge vistas recently (a week?) nor have I been doing "pure" no trace of man-made, But this won't be pure.....

Lots of green!  with the days getting shorter, and the night colder the landscape will start to change quickly!

The depth is primarily achieved by atmospheric perspective, that is the color and intensity of hue establishing a sense of distance.

Close.  I have a little cold, mostly congestion, and I didn't want to be in a video. I had a lot of great responses from yesterday's posts,
some from old friends and family, people I've known forever, and that's nice!

Just at the end of my 2 hr, painting session today, the light hit the power lines and bang! they popped right out.

The sun was still high enough not to cause any major problems,

This is easy.

This is #401,  since I re-booted painting in my life,( May, 2012) after many years, doing so many other things, and telling myself that art didn't pay and I needed a 12 step program not to make art. It worked for a while, then I turned 50 and was in a different place, I fell off the wagon and only wonder why I ever got on it.
