Brookwood Hall plein air


5x7 oil on canvas panel. Tuesday was an overcast gray day. The colors were outstanding next to the gray sky. Actually I just wanted to capture the beauty of the colors and grayness of the sky and water.

An hour later nature started to change the scene. Once again in awe of natures beauty. I will return again to this lovely spot. I also want to add the water fowl.

Happy painting everyone.

  3. Hi Joan,

    I love your colors of the sky and water, they are very natural. It really feels like a gray fall day. Very nice palette Joan, and a lovely spot as well.

  4. Hi Joan!... This sure captures the stillness and softness of autumn... just after the brillaince has started to wane.

    I find it much more appealing to paint. Makes my heart sing... it does! Seems it does so for "You" as well Joan!

    A lovely plein air piece!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce
