Yesterday was a perfect day for plein air painting in Kettle Moraine State Forest. Not only was it sunny and warm but I was also entertained by the abundant wildlife including a beautiful red fox!

I used a limited palette of Cadmium Yellow Light, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White.


  1. Beautiful, Carol! I love the brushwork and composition. Reminds me of the hills of Tennessee.

  2. Beautiful results from such a limited palette, one that I also like!

  3. Gorgeous color in this Carol...and that spot of blue in the foreground just dances...well done!

  4. Carol, you managed to make the warmth of the day come through with the beautiful colors. Love it.
