"Pastoral Dreams" (Pabst Farm)


This is another from the Oconomowoc Mid-Summer Brush Plein Air event. We happened upon this marsh-ey pasture and jumped out of the car to paint it. I wanted the challenge of creating a sense of depth and space while hinting at the water trailing through the pasture.

You achieved both!! It is a lovely painting, I sense the distance and love how the water seems to flow through the field.
