To complete the painting I laid in the background trees using various shades of brown, then the evergreen trees followed before finishing up with finer details such as tree branches etc. A wooden fence on the right helped add much needed detail to the mostly open area on that side and the smaller spots of orange brought a little more color into the foreground. I'll probably fiddle with it a bit more but for now I'm declaring the painting finished! This oil will form my centerpiece in the up-coming exhibition at Berkley Gallery in Warrenton, Virginia that opens this weekend. The reception is on Saturday Nov 23rd from 5:00 to 7:00 and the exhibition runs through to the end of December. Country Farm is 24" x 36" (610cm x 915cm).
I am an artist living and working near Washington DC in the USA. I was born in the UK but have lived abroad most of my life. I paint mostly landscapes and birds but have many interests so you never know what will turn up. Most of the paintings shown here are for sale so please contact me at jeremypearse (at) gmail.com if interested. Thanks for visiting!
