Have you ever come across an outdoor scene that made you think, this is awesome? Landscape artists are always on the lookout for these special places. This past Spring, my husband and I took a drive and came across a scene like this that was no less than 1.5 miles from our house; we had no idea it existed. But I knew when I saw the Park it had all the elements for a great painting: fantastic light and shadows, fresh Spring greens with the trees and grass, beautiful river and rocks, and best of all pathways and a bridge. This place, Ashmore Park, had it all!
I wanted to reveal the Park to viewers in sections, so I painted it as a three-piece series (sizes are 7×5, 8×10 and 11×14). The first two paintings are of the river bank which had all these neat little nature elements, and the third piece gives the viewer the entire Park scene that included the river and bridge.
First 5 x 7: Ashmore Park – close up view of the river bank.
Second 8 x 10: The River Bank @ Ashmore Park
Third 11 x 14: The River View @ Ashmore Park
I hope you enjoyed this Series, it was a very special find ~ Mary
