Dancing Leaves

Dancing Leaves 16x20
This was painted up Pinos Creek Road - I was drawn to the color and was able to actually get off of the road to paint as well- an added bonus.  I had a hard time trying to keep my palette in the shade- something that I was determined to do- I know that had the sun been shining on my canvas, this painting would have been about 2 shades darker.  This is a large plein air for me so I moved rather quickly -

Beautiful, subtle use of color. Has a kind of super-reality.

You really captured the way the leaves glow with intense color in the sun. It rivals the foliage we have now here in New England!
