SUNRISE, Pacific Northwest Plein Air Competition, Day 3
Sunrise Over the Orchard, 6 x 8 oil on panel
It is cold in the morning as I pull my supplies from the van. The clouds from the night before have disappeared, and the sky is filled with glowing atmosphere. I love the glow on the tops of the pear trees as sunlight pours into the valley.
As a plein air painter, I spend many contented hours sitting in some inspiring spot with the sights and sounds of the outdoors, capturing my impressions of light and color. Back in the studio, these works expand, recreating a particular place in a special moment.
