Have a wonderful day with family, friends and loved ones! Praises to God for all the blessings He has given us.
And, now, to the last of the fall plein air oil paintings.
You can check out the earlier ones HERE and HERE.
Some leaves still hung on the trees, even at this late date, so I headed out with my backpack into the woods. Another gorgeous day to spend in the forest. The deer firearms season starts on Saturday, November 13, so, while I still hike every day in Yellowwood State Forest, which borders my property, I normally do not set up and paint.
However, in recent years, the woods have been pretty quiet and I rarely see a hunter so, who knows, if I have time, I may go out to paint anyway. The colors of the forest, after the peak, are still so lovely, Rusts, oranges, and violets predominate.
But I have other deadlines looming so I may have to be satisfied with the fall paintings I have done.
So, here are some detail shots of the painting.
I sign the painting in the field in the wet paint with a rubber tipped “shaper”. The red tinted panel shows through from underneath. But the signature melds perfectly into the painting without sticking out like a sore thumb..
Field Notes on the back of the painting:
“Mid-60°s, nice, 1 1/2 miles back in Yellowwood State Forest, Brown County, Indiana. Jack met us at the back gate to go home. So glad he didn’t run off! Third day in a row. Plein air oil. “End of Autumn, November 10, 2021,” Sciscoe Creek, Brown County, Indiana, Yellowwood State Forest.”
In upcoming blogs, I will share the new holiday oil paintings I am working on.
