Fall Sunlight on the Rappahannock (Oil on Panel)

I originally saw a version of this photo as a horizontal and had printed it out and was planning on painting it at some point. When my sister, Kathryn, posted the cropped version it definitely reminded me that I still wanted to do something with the image. So this is something I finished rather quickly a week ago. I liked each stage as I went along. That's usually a good sign. I guess the image has all the right elements going for it including the dramatic lights and darks.

This oil on panel measures 12" x 12".

If you have any questions please email me.
