This is a smaller version of an earlier post. This is a huge rolling field covered in blueberry bushes in Rockport, Maine. The blueberry bushes turn bright red in the fall. The dirt road crests the hill where you have panaramic views of the ocean. The colors in autumn are unbelievable.
My sister has the most interesting flare for interior decorating. I just felt I had to do a painting of her kitchen. I painted her living room already and gave it to her as a gift. She is one of my biggest fans. This painting is done with a watercolor wash and pastels on top. A little funky - just like the kitchen.
What I liked best about this angle of the barn was being able to see the gold side doors. The more the painting progressed the less significant this became. I'm working on a larger version. Maybe I'll work the golds and browns more then.
This is a pond on the edge of an apple orchard. The sun was going in and out the entire time, so the color of the water kept changing. It was a busy time in the orchard for the pickers - and the apples were de-lish.
Autumn is by far the best time to paint outside. The sun is lower in the sky (at least up here in New England), many of the leaves have fallen leaving bare trees (which I love), the sun is warm... I could go on.
