My scene.


I'm starting on a pretty dark tone.

















The colors are very muted, but the green of the foreground field wasn't, there were also touches of very bright light yellows on a few trees.














There are almost always bright highlight bouncing off things like grass, or the road, even if they're small.














Sight-size shot.














Money Shot.


A nice quiet spot, I had a visitor; Thomas E. Moses, a painter and the great-grandchild of Anna Mary Robertson Moses, aka: Grandma Moses, who painted in these same hills not that long ago. Here is an interesting article about his work:  http://www.benningtonbanner.com/artsweekend/ci_8311604





At the same time, a fellow painter and friend, Stella Erlich, was painting just a few hundred yards down the road, she's an awesome person and painter and her web site is here:http://stellaehrich.com/.
