I thought it would be nice to paint something other than Pet Portraits.
All the paintings in this category are available as Stretched Canvas Prints, Fine Art Prints and Greeting Cards from my Fine Art America Store.
I took the reference photo for this painting one afternoon on a walk through the corn fields at the back of my house. It had been rainy and thundery all day. There was a brief break from the rain and I went for a walk with my camera. This was the view I captured. Dark thunderclouds over the distant fields and me, with my camera, in bright sunshine. Needless to say, the rain soon returned. Soft Pastels on Colourfix paper. Size 18"x12"
This painting was painted from a photograph I took on an afternoon out. It was beautifully warm and bright. The summer greens and autumn golds mixed together along with the still water and its reflections appealed to me. I had to paint it.
