Veggies at Ardenwood Historic Farm
Yet another perfect plein air painting day. Ardenwood is a great place to capture pumpkins (above), but I was firstly drawn to the sweeping lines of lettuce and cabbage as I drove in. The colors were very striking and I tried to keep them as simple as possible in my painting. I really wanted a much longer piece of paper. I have recently been painting on a 18 x 36 inch canvas and that extreme landscape size was what I needed here. Brad had the right idea working across two pages in his sketchbook!
