Mist Over The Harvest

It's really hard to resist painting landscapes this time of year. The other morning I was driving to work and finally decided to stop and snap a picture of this farm that I have been passing by for years. Of course the only camera I had was my Samsung tablet (which I somehow can't live without now). There was so much humidity in the air leaving a soft, warm mist hanging over the farm structures and equipment (the quiet was deafening).
I stopped painting landscapes almost two years ago because I was so dissatisfied with my work. I decided that I would focus on still life to try and hone in on reading values and light more accurately. So, I'm ready to start tackling the outdoors again. Here's the first one in a series of the Klamfoth Farm. This one is still tighter than I would like to see.
