Woodland Escape--Contemporary Landscape Oil Painting

Yesterday I took inspiration from a smaller plein air painting to create this 11x14 inch oil painting on stretched canvas. The original study was 5x7 inches and is for sale at Small Impressions Gallery for $35.00 plus $6.50 shipping to US addresses. It recorded enough of a glorious day at a woodland park that I wanted to relive it again. A wash of Burt Sienna added the warmth the summer afternoon had provided. Yellow Ochre and Naples Yellow were great colors for creating the dry grass that covered the ground. When this painting is dry, it will probaby make a temporary home at Impressions Gallery with some of my other landscape oil paintings.
