Busse Woods Near Dusk

Hello Friends:

Once again, I packed up my paints and easel and headed out into the woods. This time, I was accompanied by many friends and teachers who specialize in plein air painting. Alas, when I returned home and took a look at my paintings, they were once again quite dark and muddy. Painting in bright sunlight is so deceiving! I pulled out my palette knife and went to work. On this one, I layered pink, yellow, and purple over the mud I had created. It gave the painting a rather pleasing twilight effect. I hope you like it too.
