Natchez Trace Autumn - Spoken For - To my sister Dolly......

Natchez Trace Autumn
12x24 Oil on Canvas
Please visit my Etsy Shop HERE

This is a scene from the Old Natchez Trace Parkway in Middle Tennessee, very near to where my cousin Joyce Mullen lives and a little further from where my sister, Dolly Totty lives. This is such a beautiful part of the country.  I have revised this painting several times. I recently bought a tube of Cadmium Yellow oil paint and added some touches with it and some other colors in different areas. I am really liking this color. It is one that we will be using the in the workshop that I will be attending next week, with Kevin Menck. In fact, his color palette consists of 3 colors. Ultramarine, Cadmium Yellow and Cadmium Red, with Titanium white. This should be interesting. Since we will be painting plein air I need a special easel that make doing that much simpler and easier. Looking at the prices on those I have decided to make my own! I got the supplies last night. I think that took longer than it will to make it. I felt lost in that sea of bolts and nails. I'll let you know how it turns out.
