Plein Air Days
Parkway Series #309 12 x 16 oil Sold
This is a view of the James River from the Parkway bridge at milepost 63.7. I painted this previously in October, on location; what a beautiful fall day it was!!! This is a studio rendition of the earlier painting. In the studio there is a bit more time to work on correct values but the earlier study was sooooo helpful in remembering the feel and the beauty of the moment. That's why I am eagerly awaiting "plein air" days to return after the very cold winter.
