Autumn Oaks on a Hillside

Yep, it's autumn, and that is a good reason to paint trees clad in copper, red, and gold. This image of a hill covered mostly by large oak trees on a sunny fall day. A cool breeze blows through the rustling leaves, offset by the low angle sun.

Patapsco Park: Autumn Shadows

Well, this photo is technically from late last October, but autumn is on its way, so it seems natural to paint a fall scene. This one was based on a photo taken near the railroad tracks - the incline on the left leads to the railroad bed, though you can't really see anything of the tracks themselves from this area.
