Shimek Forest

Yesterday was a great day for plein air painting. I went to Shimek Forest and found this scene. The problem with this time of year is a lot of trees are still bare. I have green grass and bare branches in this scene. There were dead leaves on the ground maybe I should have accented them more.
6x6 Oil on Raymar panel.


  1. I love the soft effect of the undergrowth and the bare trees,its a nice contrast!

  2. That's lovely Carlene. I agree that the bare trees this year are a bit frustrating. So, I just take artist's liberties!
    Happy painting.
