It’s been a few months since I’ve painted a landscape and today it just felt right to get started once again ~ as I watch the rain continue to fall here in TX. We’ve been blessed with a tremendous amount of rainfall over the past two months – we aren’t out of the woods with our drought, but the land and lakes are refilling at a fast rate and well, it just gorgeous green tones everywhere you look.
Private Drive, an oil pastel (8×10) was painted on a gesso prepared hardboard beginning with an acrylic underpainting. I had every intention of creating a scene that was darker and foggy, but as I started playing around with the sky adding blue and what not well before you know it – autumn was born and color took over.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend, got the last of the summer flowers and a few perennials planted yesterday ~ color is beginning to dot the landscape.
