In the Heart of Amon Basin
This area is in the Amon Basin, behind the homes to the north end of Willowbrook housing development. I painted in the field around Christmas on one of the last warm sunny days we've had. Today (while in-situ in the studio) I brightened some of the colors and fussed with the shadows--trying to make them not look fussy ;-). Hopefully I've not lost the freshness of plein air. Anyway a fun exercise painting in the Amon Basin. A few of us are wanting to host an art show of paintings we've done there sometime in the near future. So paint paint paint some more of this beautiful area, and we will show folks just how spectacular it really is.
