After settling in down here on the Eastern Shore, I have begun some smaller landscape studies as a way of getting a little more familiar with the land surrounding us. This study is a view looking across the nearby bean field to the distant treeline with evening back-lit clouds. I'm working on a series of similar scenes such as this so more to come.
At nearby Chincoteague, I did this study in the reserve looking across the marsh to the distant treeline. The wonderful clouds were a range of warm and cool colors and made for an exciting morning. Both of these studies are 5" x 7", oil on canvas.
