Harrisburg Skyline I, Lyn O'Neal
Oil on linen board
6 x 8 inches
What a fanatastic view of the Harrisburg city skyline from the West Fairview Boat Launch! I painted this piece over the two Thursdays we painted at this location. The first day was overcast, drizzly and chilly. I took my time with some thumbnail sketches and finally decided on this composition. We, unbelievably, saw a golden eagle flying above! It must have been migrating through. It was huge and riding the wind so close above us we were mesmerized. After that distraction I painted in the scene. It was such a dull day so I brought back this painting this past Thursday, which was sunny and hazy, and brightened up this piece for the final touches.
