oil on gessoed paper
Here is my contribution to Angela Elledge's sketchbook for The Flying Moleskin Project for her theme of "places". This place is just up the road from my home and I wanted the capture the great fall colors (which have mostly faded away here now). I tried to paint with mostly thick, quick brushstrokes to try to add light and movement to the trees and the stream.
Be sure to check out Angela's work...she does the most amazing work at painting animals!
