Dandelion Field

Dandelion Field, plein air, 10 x 8 inches, oil on stretched linen.
A field full of dandelions, mostly gone to seed.
When I started this painting, the rain was just reaching the other side of the county. I stopped as the thunder started rumbling in the distance.

Even though I wasn't far from home, having a car close by is a good idea when the weather looks iffy.

 The sunlight, which had vibrantly lit the treetops and grasses when I began, had given way to a moody and more subdued light before the coming rain. I was glad I'd put the most vibrant greens and yellows on before they changed!

Lining the finished painting up with the path- just for fun.


  1. I love that last photo where you lined up the painting with the scene.

    You are awesome!!
