Tuesday's Plein Air at Innisfree Farm

A plein air painting of a rural landscape with a series of tree clusters. There is a strong pattern of colors and loose brushwork in the foreground grasses.

Innisfree III. 8x10 oil on linen. 2014 Plein Air

This Tuesday's outing with Loudoun Sketch Club was back to Innisfree Farm in Marshall, VA for the second week.  We had a great tour of the farm in the back of a 4x4 and I got the chance to see the inside of some Purple Martin nesting boxes.

This painting took a bit of tweaking back in the studio to get it to completion.

*Friday 20 June update:  I've stored this painting in the nice, super warm garage all week and it's already dry.  So I'll have it framed and on sale at WLAST this weekend.
