Two Finished Plein Aire Paintings

Now that November has arrived and little white flakes are sifting down, it's been time to finish work begun outdoors in the warmer weather.  It was uncanny how often Sandy's and my planned plein aire sessions unfortunately coincided with rainy days this past summer.  But we managed to get out and paint several days.  The two paintings below were done at the end of the season and just finished....

"September on the Ottaquechee"
12" x 16" - oil on canvas

"Swanzey Pond"
16" x 20" - oil on canvas

It always involves some gear switching to get back inside the studio with different approaches to new work in the fall.  It will be interesting to see what develops in the coming days....

  1. "Old Barn, North Hero", is wonderful. I never saw this. This could make a great large piece if you wanted to reexamine it. Drawing or painting.
