Apple Tree, Fort Hoskins, OR


Wednesday was one of the last plein air trips for the season and we went to Fort Hoskins. Unfortunately there was no fort, however there was a large field of apple trees to paint.  I started this oil on site but the sun was too bright and I had to finish it later.  I think I am starting to get the difference between real oil painting versus coloring canvas with oil.  What do you think?

This is very expressive. I like it. Colors are delicious.

I like this very much!! Interesting thought, "painting" versus "coloring the canvas". I can understand your meaning as I look at this rich, wonderful scene.

Lovely work. Especially the Pug you use for your profile picture...I have two Pugs so I am a bit biased towards Pug pieces :)

This is gorgeous....Love your epiphany "I think I am starting to get the difference between real oil painting versus coloring canvas with oil." I'll be considering that for me with watercolor.

Keep up the great work.
