The day after the plein air event in Georgetown, I painted the third painting in the Mansfield Plantation series in the morning before leaving to come home. I was inspired by the path and the strong shadows of the trees. I started with a value drawing using black gesso. Once that layer dried, I glazed with red and orange.
I added mid-value opaque colors to complete the painting. As often happens, this process was more enjoyable, and I was happier with the painting, than when I was painting for a contest the previous day.
