A road trip with some fellow artists brought us to the lovely Hopewell Valley. This plein air oil painting was done a month or so ago and captures one of the beautiful farms in the area.
We parked on the side of the road at the top of a small ridge. I loved the contrast of the green with the red barns and outbuildings. It’s not always easy to find rolling landscapes in New Jersey but they do exist!
I continue to work on developing texture through brushwork and building up the paint to enhance that aspect of the painting. I love oil paint!
