Plein air study at Discovery Park

Field Study: South Lawn. 5x7, oil on linen panel. 2016

I managed to get outside and do a little sketching at the local park this afternoon.

As this is a just a field study, I spent most of my time trying to get the colors and values right. On the treeline I found that less is more - the single dark mass seems to be just enough to get the idea of the trees across.
