Bosque ll

Bosque ll
6x8 oil on canvas $100.

Yesterday's painting of the Socorro Bosque was painted plein air (on location) but todays' was painted from a photo I took, then displayed on my monitor. I enjoy painting from the monitor because it illuminates the shadow areas where as a photo usually prints the shadows too dark.
This view position was turned around from the other one and the sun was behind all the gathering clouds. It makes for a cool toned painting.
