Plein Air at Silverbrook Farm

by Simon Bland / Aug 20, 2014 / Painting Landscape Plein air

A plein air painting of meadows and trees with masses of wildflowers in the foreground.

Silverbrook. 8x10, oil on linen panel. 2014.

This was done on location at Silverbrook Farm in Hillsboro, VA. I had a great perch from which to paint this scene, standing under a mature Norwegian Maple on the side of a hill which let me overlook the fields and valley.
