Smoky Mountain Farm land

"Farm Near Pigeon Forge"
12 x 12 inches, oil on birch panel
Work in progress
Email me at if interested in this one.
Sorry for the glare on this pic. I will re-shoot and repost when I have more time. This is a spot I saw when traveling near Pigeon Forge, TN. I have not decided if I am calling this one done. I wanted a loose, impressionistic approach, but I'm not sure the foreground doesn't need some changes. The foreground had cast shadows across it from a nearby grove of trees, but i'm not sure it reads as shadow. Maybe I''l tweak the color in the shadows.
This was a beautiful place, and I only had time to capture some photos from a moving car. This farm land was all lit up with afternoon sun, with patches of treeline here and there. I will have to visit the area again when I have more time to complete some studies of the area.

These are beautiful colors! It's getting to be that time of year when there are just so many scenes to paint and gorgeous light.
