Plein Air Landscape: A Quiet Street in Saturday Morning

Oil on Canvas paper 12 x 12

This morning I got up almost the same time as sunrise. Having grabbed something to eat, I hopped into my car and drove to the street corner on Leeland Heights Blvd. I had not idea, before I took it as my bike route, that Leeland Heights Blvd continued here in this part of the town. 

Remember I had said I wanted to paint some scenes on my bike route in dusk? That is because I had only seen them in the evening when I was biking. I wasn't able to go yesterday evening. Then a question suddenly  came to my mind: What does the road look like in the morning? Out of curiosity, I decided to go there in the morning. Even though the leaves of the woods were not washed golden as in dusk, but they are beautiful in their own way. So I set up and made this painting. When I was back home, it wasn't quite 11 AM yet. 


  1. Love the strong diagonal and you captured the sky just as it was this Compositionally (not sure that is a word) the addition of the tree bits on the left side make the painting sooo much more interesting, emphasizing the distance to the background.. Wow! Thank you for sharing.

  2. You are welcome, Pegret. It felt so good to paint the nature in the morning. I could almost hear insects in the air.


  3. we are painting at History Park in Punta Gorda this morning, you should too! 9 to noon
