Brandywine Creek

The heat has been pretty bad as most of you know in the last two weeks and that has kept the group from going out to paint, though many of us have been painting in the studio because 95-104 temperatures are not great for painting outside. We hope to go out again this Monday and get back to the plein air an paint as a group--but I didn't want the blog to go silent for too long, so I am posting this little painting I did plain air out in the Brandywine from 2009. It was a nice crisp early November day, and this was painted being the Brandywine Museum, home of the Wyeths and long the Brandywine Creek which runs right past the museum. It was a sort of a dull, misty day until about 30 minutes before the sun set and then the sun came out and gave us some nice contrast and glow.
