Bench With a View


Bench With a View
14 x 11", Oils on canvas covered hardboard


It was a gorgeous fall day at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation to paint this on location, "en plein air". One of the preserve managers lives in the house at the bottom of this hill. The red fall fields and views of the surrounding hills make this one of my favorite spots on the 4700 acre property. There is a paintable scene in every direction! They recently put in the bench by the tree, providing weary hikers with a perfect resting spot to view the serene landscape.

Hi Jaime,
I like this piece here. The tree is great. I like the contrast in the piece and absolutely love that dark background mountain area. Very nice work!

Ron, thanks so much for visiting my blog and commenting. I love painting at Ward Pound Ridge, especially this time of year and in early spring. The colors there are wonderfully varied.
