A path between the trees

Another outing on the Biltmore Estate. Found another quiet spot to set up and again, nestled under a tree. Find an area of focus, I started out with doing a value sketch to establish the baseline composition (used a view finder to help).


This was only my second time outside painting (just posting it late). I think I will plan to paint this again (but in the studio) to assess if I interpret the values any different.


We shall see.


Path Between the Trees; 9 x 12 in., Oil on Cradled Panel - plein air time 2.5 hours

Cheers for now!
