Arboretum Path

My plein air group met on Tuesday at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Oakdale. Unfortunately for our area we didn't get strong autumn colors this year. I had trouble with this one, trying to make that tree in front stand out from the background. I think it looks better on the screen than in real life. This is 5 x 7.


  1. absolutely FANTASTIC! LOVE the rich warm colors, Joan!!!! Are you taking Jean's class next year? I hope so!

  2. Hi Joan,

    Beautiful. You certainly captured the atmospher of the day.

    Who Jean, do you know the Jean Lin has mentioned?

    See you soon,

  3. Very beautiful! I wish I could come and paint with you! What were the colors you used? The greens are luscious!

  4. I think this is gorgeous, Joan. But then I always think your work is gorgeous!

  5. Lin - Thanks. I haven't decided yet.

    Joan - Thanks so much.

    Rose - Thanks. I think I used hookers green, quin gold, mixed with everything else on my pallet.

    Eileen - Thanks so much.

    Sherry - Many thanks for being such a fan.
