I promised I would post some landscape studies that I have been doing during the sporadically nice-weather days. Here is one that I did in Baltimore County, in Moncton where there is a lot of rural farmland. I spent about 2.5-3 hours on this, and it is very low-chroma (meaning the colors are low in saturation, because it was quite foggy that morning).
This next study I busted out in about 30 or 40 minutes so it is obviously not very finished, but you get a sense of what I was going for. I had started another painting earlier in the afternoon but from a different vantage point where the sun was flat on the abandoned rail car and it was difficult to get a sense of form. So I decided to move and try again, but then there was only about 45 minutes before the sun set. This is on Falls Road, near the Hampden area of Baltimore.
