I visited Cadwalader Park on Sunday with my Plein Air Group. This is a lovely park surrounding the Ellarslie Museum in Trenton, NJ. I learned the park was designed by the same person who designed Central Park in NYC. I could see some resemblance.
This is my plein air painting for that day. I stood in the park looking out at the surrounding edges and liked the trees and the brightness of the old yellow home in the distance. The painting is 8″ x 10″ and was done in oils. I really am enjoying painting snow scenes. There is something very magical about them. Perhaps this is one of the things I like about snow in general. It has so many beautiful qualities to it that can change the feel of the landscape. I’ve often felt it to be much like a blanket that covers a town in peaceful quiet and beauty.
