After the rain

Now that I'm back into the mood of painting, started working on painting larger originals of my plein-air landscapes.

The newest painting, After the rain, is a 16 x 22 oil painting and is based on a plein air attempt that I did during a Spring workshop that I attended (studying with Karen Winslow of Winslow Art Studio). As usual in Vermont, it was a cloudy rainy morning and, at this time, the rain had stopped. It was just misty and cold.

In this case, rather than adjust the painting for a lighter mood, I went the opposite way. I made it a bit darker and gloomier than the conditions that morning. It just seem to fit better.

This painting turned out well.
