Plein Air at the Orchard

Went out to Reid's Orchard today and scoped out this scene to paint today.

Here are some progression shots and then the final image.

The scene I painted

Underpainting in burnt sienna and ultramarine

Getting some color blocked in.

Where is this thing going? I was starting to worry about this point...what had I gotten myself into?

I stopped at this point, about two hours, and will finish it in the studio.

And this is what I came up with.

"Down by the Pond"
Plein Air Oil on hand prepared smooth panel
