Painting on Location in Marshall, VA

A plein air painting of a tree in a field

Innisfree Farm. 9x12 oil on linen. 2014

I spent this morning standing in the middle of a field at Innisfree Farm in Marshall, VA.  It started out quite cloudy and overcast but by the time I was half-way through the painting the sun had come out.  I laid this one down fairly quickly and did a few small tweaks to the edges back in the studio.

I've had a fairly good run of luck with plein air painting so far this year, managing to finish and keep a painting from 4 of the last 5 outings (a personal best).

This painting will be for sale at stop #4 on the WLAST tour.
