Studio in the Woods, Brown County

22nd Annual Great Outdoor Art Contest, T.C. Steele Historic Site, September 11, 2010
16x20 Oil on Stretched Cotton.
This was an interesting day, unusual in regard to lighting conditions, which were overcast with rain and intermittent fog (or clouds) rolling through.
Everything was wet all the time, including my canvas, pallette and brushes (and me)-but I still had great fun!
In this work, I know I failed to capture that atmosphere. All values should have been more subdued. This effort is too "colorized".
I hope I live to 110 years or so, as, eventually, I will get it right.


  1. Myles....I was sorry to miss this one, but had a conflict. Always love it there. Stop by the gallery sometime and I will share some of the things I picked up from Randall Sexton. Just returned from California. Did 3 days of painting in a workshop with him.

  2. Jerry: I hope the gallery opening next weekend is a great success, and I hope I can be there, but there is a conflict which may prevent me getting there on the day. I look forward to visiting some other time, if not then.

    Good Luck
