MONCHES FARM (en plein air)

Monches Farm 9.5 x 7.
This piece was completed on a lovely May day at Monches Farm near Colgate, WI, painted during a workshop with James Hempel. It was a privelege to paint with James and I learned a lot from him that day. I see color differently now and I learned a new color - bluorange - a nice blue/orange used in certain shadow areas.
James Hempel is an outstanding Wisconsin artist and instructor. See the recent article about James in Outdoor Painter Magazine | Painting Large in a Quick Draw Event | Home of Plein Air Magazine
