Cambridge Stream

Cambridge Stream, Acrylic on Canvas, 9"x12", NFS
Yesterday was a gorgeous late summer day.  I went to an afternoon plein air workshop with Eric Tobin in Cambridge, VT.  The workshop was held at the Porter Farm just below Mt. Mansfield along the Lower Pleasant Valley Road. This stream runs through the farm. 

I don't ordinarily paint outside - I am a studio painter by inclination - but it is good to get out there every once in a while to remind myself of some of the subtleties of natural light.  I know, you can't do that in one afternoon, but you have to start somewhere.  So, I went out there and came home with a sunburn and this painting.
