“Out in the Field”

“Out in the Field”  10″ x 8″ oil on canvas

Taking a break from working in my studio this week. The weather has been spectacular so that’s been part of the inspiration.  I have also been missing plein air painting.

With that in mind, my focus this week has been on going outdoors. On Monday I traveled over to the Pole Farm in Hopewell, NJ.  It was late afternoon. The light is usually nice about then.  I found this lovely vista, which I have painted before from a slightly different position.  As I arrived clouds started to move in, the wind picked up and it just became more beautiful. 

This painting was worked on a 10″ x 8″ canvas in oils. I have to say the sky was fun to work with. It kept changing and I kept seeing more colors.  It was a peaceful way to spend the afternoon.  I was surrounded by nature and birds singing all around me.  How much more could I hope for!

  1. Exactly and spot on Catherine – what a wonderful day. The results show in your beautiful painting of End of Spring sunlight and the hazy days of summer just beginning.
