“Valley Farm Gazing”

“Valley Farm Gazing” 11″x 14″ oil on masonite

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!
