Saturday Plein Air - Hogback Preserve

The weather just doesn't seem to want to cooperative on Saturdays. Mid-week, it was 78 degrees and today it was about 40 degrees when we started painting. The Hogback Preserve is a very peaceful place - extremely quiet except for the sounds of songbirds. We also had a reminder of the critters there, as there was a slight smell of skunk, but they stayed away from us and we never saw them.

I decided to use my Soltek today and paint in oils. I was working with a limited primary palette. Because there isn't much color in the landscape yet, I decided to just hone in on the lower part of this interesting beech tree with the splits in it's trunk.
