This evening view across the reserve looks north to a distant treeline. When working outdoors, I can usually set up my easel and get everything ready beforehand which allows me a fair bit of time for working on a painting like this before it gets too dark to see. Sometimes I come back the next evening for another session but for this one, I finished it in my studio as I had a pretty good idea what I wanted the final painting to look like. Initially I felt that the underpainting was a bit too dark but I came to realize that it allowed for a better contrast between the land and the sky. This is yet another painting that will be exhibited at McBride Gallery in Annapolis, Maryland. Size is 8" x 10", oil on canvas.
