The sun moves, shadows change; there is only a short period of time that an artist has to capture the shifts of light and color when painting outdoors - but it is this very desire to distill the energy and freshness of nature that drives the plein air painter. Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters was formed to bring together artists who share this passion.
It was a beautiful day to paint at Letort Falls. I finished the trees at home. Personally, I think there should be more varied color in the rocks. It is 11 x 14, oil on canvas. Would love to go back someday.
