This is some very low water in the C&O canal near where Muddy Branch passes under it at Pennyfield lock, Maryland. It was a nice comfortable day today with early spring leaves just beginning to show on the trees.
This Forest Grove United Methodist Church in Tuscarora, Maryland. it is a beautiful example of 19th century rural American churches. I wish I had backed up some on this view. The background is a wide expanse of open fields with a mountain range at the most distant.
Good day for painting even if I did freeze to death. The sun stuck around long enough to allow me to catch the shadows I was hoping to capture. It clouded up after awhile but would reappear sufficient to complete the painting
This was a difficult painting for me due to the sun moving in and out all day. I felt I had to change with the light as I progressed. That's not a simple task in watercolor as far as I'm concerned. The painting took about three hours (which is the norm for me). The location is Barnesville Rd. at Boyds Md.
This stone house sits at the intersection of White'sFerry Rd. and Rte. 28 in Montgomery Co. Md. This was another cold chilling day to paint outdoors. Once again my only recourse was to sit in my truck and paint.
