House in the Meadow

My plein air group went to a beautiful location in Brookhaven that we've been lucky enough to paint at before. It is a  huge piece of property with reeds and water from the river, a white barn, several other buildings, alpacas, geese, and this wonderful view over the fence to this meadow. I didn't get a chance to paint it the last time, so that was what I was determined to paint yesterday. I thing I used just about everything in that foreground grass...some salt, spattering, resist, dry brush, and lots of layers. I really like the way it came out. This is 7 x 10.

  5. And well you should, Joan. Gorgeous work. I find myself wishing I was sitting in the house there, windows open, dry breezes soughing through the field grasses...
