Oil Study

Arboretum 9x12
Saturday I stayed home and painted a scene that was started plein air.  The Bayard Cutting Arboretum is such a lovely place to paint.
On Location at the Arboretum

Although it wasn't completed I did walk away with enough of the information needed to work on a larger piece at home.
Happy Painting Everyone.


  1. Gopod morning Joan!... A nice study... full of that rich fall colour and mood! Once the basics are there... the painting as you have shown can be finished... any time... any where!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,

  2. This is a beautiful painting, Joan. You certainly captured the beauty of the Bayard Cutting Arboretum...such a beautiful place that I haven't visited yet....Hopefully next year....It's funny but I pass it every time I visit my sister!! Again, Wonderful work!!!

  3. Wow! this is just beautiful Joan!! i love the snap with your painting included in the shot. just gorgeous. i can hear the leaves rustling in the wind!

  4. Loving the colours, Joan. The light is so autumnal and the reflections work so well. Bravo!

  5. Nice one my friend. Lovely colours. I particularly like the light spots on the right and the reflections in the water. Well done Joan.
    it seems that I `m not receiving your postings in my emails. i know that i`am not the only one. all the best Joan.
