Painted this on Friday morning with Karen and Jack Winslow.
They took me to this spot near their house in Cambridge, VT.
It was a good morning for painting.
Karen and Jack are fine painters who deserve a wider audience.
Jack does these large landscapes that are just amazing.
He goes back to spots over and over again. Something I want to start doing.
They also are two of the nicest people you can hope to meet.
Check out Karen's blog:

I am still working on this, I will post an updated photo.
What I did was to float a gray/violet haze over the background to pull it back.
This was mixture of violet and gray at about value 6 and I worked with this moving up and down according to how I wanted the effect to look.

I love this. I love the sense of movement in it.

Your plein air work is wonderful, so atmospheric. There's an energy in your paintings, you can almost feel the sun and movement. Thank for the link to Karen's work as well. I enjoyed seeing her version of the scene as well.
