Three Oil Sketches - Orange, Connecticut

Japanese Maple

This is the first of three oil sketches done in Orange, Connecticut.  Even though we are in the middle of the summer, this Japanese Maple seems to be foreseeing the future, with its yellow/orange leaves and cool shade.

Here are two more sketches.

    I love the composition–vertical, edge of the building on one side, leaves pushing in on the other–and the texture of the leaves! Yes, the yellow of the building is like other buildings in Europe. It captures an incidental moment but its subject lives on :)

  • Marylou, I appreciate how you notice the composition in my paintings. I loved painting these leaves. Thank you!
