Silent Fog - Enlargement

Silent Fog, 18 x 18

So you thought I was done with all that fog? Nope! After doing the small color studies, I returned to my plein air pieces and painted them onto larger canvases. This revisiting process allowed me to solidify in my mind how I got there and to understand it better. I also just really fell in love with the soft subtle gradations in value and couldn't leave them alone. :)

I am a little behind in posting, so this one and the next three are from a couple weeks ago. I have a show coming up on October 24 here in Austin at the Davis Gallery, so I have been busy trying to get all of that together... well, and travelling to the workshop... must slow down...

Hi Laurel,

I get your fog fascination, so did Monet. This is just spectacular. I love your range. You can paint any kind of light in any colour and make it sing.

XOXOXOXBarbara

And teaching....don't forget that little bit.... THis is another lovely one, Laurel--I like the way the filtered light still manages to find its way between the trees.

The atmospheric perspective in this piece is really successful.
