Light & Landscape: The Vermont Experience

“Low Key” – the last color in the November landscape

“Low Key” – the last color in the November landscape

Cold drains color from the landscape.

Our first pre-winter cold snap has come and gone. Four days and nights of below freezing temps have faded what color remained.

Whats left is a landscape quickly changing to gray and brown. Low Key - watercolor plein air painting by Tony Conner Flat overcast heightens the effect.

This scene was painted “du siege’ avant” while I was parked on the side of West Mountain Road in Shaftsbury, Vermont. From here the view is to the east. VT State Route 7A is just over the hill in the distance. I don’t know the name of the farm that sits on the hill, but it is a working farm with a farmstand out on Rt 7A.

This is a favorite painting area for me.  In the opposite direction, there are many paintable scenes. This particular one has been done once before as a sketch/study.

The original painting is approx. 7 1/2″ x 11″ and is mounted and matted to 11″ x 14″, for easy, low-cost framing. Save 20% if purchased by November 30th. Shipping is $6.95 to any address in the U. S.
