This afternoon's weather was perfect for November. I went to Haley Farm at the end of Hopper Road, where several hiking trails start. While painting in the field, a friend who had been hiking came by, saying, I was wondering if it was you. Have you ever done the tree-lined path leading to the trails? No, but I've thought about it. Well, here's a first painting of the tree-lined path. The Hopper view is a 9x12 oil on panel, while the path is an 8x10 pastel. Weather permitting, I'll be there again tomorrow.
It was pretty windy while I was painting. Dropping a wet painting facedown onto the grass produces interesting results. I won't scrape off the small debris until the paint dries.
