Plein Air at Fair Hill: Monday's Report

I just want to share what I have done so far at Fair Hill this week. Both days were short outside for me: Sunday was HOT and HUMID so I didn't last long; today I just found that I couldn't get any farther on the painting after an hour so I brought it home to work on it here.
This is the view I had on Sunday. I knew I wouldn't last long so I opted for pastels. I worked on paper about 7x12. Although I took a photo I have not used it.

I may still work on this. I'd like for the sunlit grass to be softer and for the treeline to recede more.This is what I produced today. It is 11x14 oil on board. I really had fun with this. I HATE painting green so this whole week is going to be tourturous but good for me!

Sara, I am loving your new work! I love the muted colors and especially the landscapes. They would look so nice in my house!
