Orchard Road

6x6 Oil on Panel

Today, our plein air group painted at Kimball Farm. This tractor had a flat tire on the backside so I knew it would be parked long enough to paint.

I like the red against the blues and aqua colors in this one. Clever artist tactic about the flat tire... :)

Loving these tractors and trucks you are painting. Your color palette is always right on, but the looseness in your brushstrokes are making me soooo jealous!

Great painting, Karen. I love the colors you have used in the windshield of the tractor, and then how it repeats in the road. Fantastic!

Kelley Sanford said...

Great painting. Agree with Ann, I'm so jealous of your luscious brushwork.

Good Job on that tractor. Feels like it's just conming out of the field. So glad I was there when you painted it.

Lovely, I like the tractor half on the side which explains that the farm continues beyond.... Karen, there is a "Red Tractor" challenge on at RedBubble.com at the moment!

Good to be back.

Love that red with the cool blues. Your style is so gorgeous that any subject you paint is transformed into a thing of beauty. Fave sweet spot: that swirl of blue coming off of the corner of the red cab. Just great!

Loving this! And I too am so jealous of those quick luscious brush strokes (sigh). Your description made me smile ♥
