June 11 - Backlit Oak and Rocks
This little painting (it is only 6 x 4 inches) is the second painting on location when the fog was rolling in while painting on location at the Santa Rosa Plateau again.
The light was changing, the colors becoming oh-so-subtle, and the need to quickly capture the composition, the values and the lighting were imminently crucial for the success of this little one. I look at it now, and I can FEEL the time of day, the weather, and the light... can you?
I truly like this painting. Although a small one, it represents the true connection an artist can get in an on-location work. 100% done on location, no "tweaking", I'm honored to share it with you.
