Kilgore Falls

Last sat. weather was so clear and cool I drove out to Harford Co. MD's highest waterfall and painted on site.Kilgore Falls is a 10 min hike into the woods. I set up deep in the shadows. The sun broke through the trees in little bursts of bright color. It was a 2 hour color sketch but it was good to get out into the world and sit in woods and try to capture a fleeting moment. I will probably
re-work this sketch and deepen the shadows.
It was quite dark when I painted it in the woods and the painting is very pale under brighter lighting conditions. oil on birch panel 12x12 in SOLD

The spontanaity is great on this one! You captured the feeling of being there with accurate immediacy. Viewing this image, I feel like I am there! Great work.
