Landscapes from Indiana

This Fall I visited Indiana.

The light changed during the time I was painting this one, from partly sunny to cloudy. I was standing on sand bars, but as I painted I kept adding more white water.

It was cloudy and still but what we see is just a starting point. Sometimes unexpected result come from Plein Air painting. This photo shows how I embellished the scene. Mainly I added a field beyond the horizon for more interest, more elements that are simplified in the foreground. I waited for a sky I wanted to paint, I normally do that first.

Lake Michigan Sunset

I saw a fabulous sunset this summer on our trip to Michigan. I had to paint it! I’ve rarely painted anything like this. I want to paint a bigger one, this one is 9×12” on canvas board. I sold the painting on Facebook to an old friend who grew up appreciating the Lake Michigan Sunset.
