Thursday was another great day so I headed out to paint. This painting from the Gettysburg Battlefield was interesting. I wanted to capture a battlefield farm, monuments and the color of the fall grasses in the fields and autumn trees. I even kept in the cannon, which I honestly thought I might drop out, but that would have ruined the paintings story. Glad I put them in. Lots of tourists passed by and made it a pleasant day.
