Kettle Moraine Firs

"Kettle Moraine Firs"
6x8 oil on canvas panel
Carol Horzempa

I took advantage of another beautiful day at Kettle Moraine State Forest painting these two little fir trees today. Midday was not the best time to paint though, but the subtle changes in the grassy meadow, and these little firs with dried weeds really intrigued me.

This painting was done on a RayMar Plein Aire Panel. I really love the texture of the medium weight canvas. I used the same limited palette as the last one.
