Redbuds in the Woods

Redbuds in the Woods
Oil on panel, 6x6
Augusta Plein Air Festival
This is my second painting from the Montelle Winery paint-out, where I walked 1/3 of the way down the hill before setting up for a  45 minute painting.  The light coming through the woods cast a warm glow on the ground and illuminated the redbuds.  I used a lot of quick strokes, just trying to get the whole painting mapped in before the time limit.  Therefore, everything about this painting is loose and impressionistic.  Now, I am heading to Michaela's awards banquet for TSA and Michael's baseball game - so I have to go!  Painting number 512 in as many days :)
