Wednesday, March 13, 2013: The day started off with uncertainty. Folks couldn't paint with me and the mountains were completely socked in with clouds. I already had the car packed, though, so decided to meet Louanne in Jericho at the Raceway Rd church parking lot to at least check out the site. Things didn't look promising upon arrival, but suddenly, clouds starting lifting! Out came the easel and paints quick and Louanne set up to sketch. Temp was about 40 degrees F with no wind initially.
I used the long horizontal format and focused on the forehead of Mt. Mansfield and the mountains to the south, with South Hill in front, to the right. I chose to paint the barn on the right side, but not to include any of the houses in the mid-ground. I was definitely drawn to the yellows, greens and ochres in the foreground. I love that variation in color found in late fall and early spring.
