November Morning

November Morning
Oil on panel, 8x6
I had a wonderful time at the Nelson Atkins Museum earlier!  I went with a friend to see the Impressionists of France exhibit - and it is amazing!  It is quite an education to be face to face with their brush work and color choices!  Arriving home with just a small window before heading out with high school friends tonight, I must paint a small and quick one.  Today finds me in the mood for soft, quiet colors and a gentle landscape.  I pulled out a heavily textured surface - which I soon discovered was not a good candidate for the palette knife!  I have mainly used a brush here, with a little palette knife for topping off foliage.  I have so many creeks close by - I am lucky to have the reference matter so close!  This is painting number 299 in 299 days.....almost 300 :)
