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.
