I got an early start Saturday morning, when I pulled into the park I was greeted with thick fog from the lake. I slowly drove around looking for deer and when I saw the first sign of color in the sky I went to the small parking spot over looking the lake.
As I was putting things away to move to the next spot I turned around and saw a herd of deer had gathered in the field behind me. That explains the dog barking earlier.
I moved around to the back of the park where last week I saw this field starting to get a nice yellow color to it.
This is the 5x7 field sketch done that morning.
11x14 studio painting done with acrylics
My interest was the field in the middle distance so I darkened the foreground shapes and added more of a golden color to the field to help make a more dramatic picture.
