This is my last painting of a 2016 autumn scene. It was started at the beginning of the fall season, when the color was just developing, and finished at the end. I felt it took forever for the trees to change; but in these last days the colors became very beautiful.
Just finished this winter mockingbird painting. I was so happy to get a
good reference picture of this fellow as he visited my bird feeder. I
just love his pose! To purchase this painting visit www.Brainvessel.com. or go to www.debkreiger.com. to see more paintings.
I painted with some friends at Ft. Hunter on Saturday. The weather was brisk, but warm in the sunshine and the color was glorious. It took a while, but the 2016 Fall has finally delivered-beautiful golds, rust, maroons, and deep, rich browns. Per usual, I completed the 'bones" of the painting [ composition, tree arrangement,value placement, some color] on site. The rest of the painting was completed at home.
