The process of painting a sunlit forest path consisted of three basic lessons.
1. Blocking basic areas with colors and shapes.
2. Adding dark and light shadows.
3. Highlighting and accenting details.
This 18 x 24 oil painting on canvas represents a summer stonewall garden during an early foggy morning. The fog rolling in the background heightens the focal attention to the flowers. The abundance of these flowers each season never ceases to amaze me . A true treasure and beauty with its untamed nature.
Mountain Vermont Stream in progress. Started painting this yesterday. This representation shows the extent of a mountain river no matter what time of year. This particular spot was off a beaten path near route 2. The view is looking upstream from a bridge elevation. Still have some touch ups to do, but having fun with the process.

A crisp morning with sunlight casting its light upon a cascading falls is a beautiful sight. This is especially true with the direct rays of spring light. New growth and a clean fresh run-off is the essence of this scene. Creating a strong value base was key to make this transparent.
