Longwood Estate plein air


More a study in fall colors, and tones. It was another beautiful day. This is only a 4x6 on canvas panel.

I have been more interested in making studies, rather than actual compositions. As I look at the artist whose work I admire, my task is to get that balance of color and the importance of graying the colors.

Today my grandchildren are coming over for homemade pizza. Of course it will be an overnight.
Enjoy your weekend everyone.
