"Greenbelt Cliff" 12x9" Oil

This morning I had wanted to initially paint this
cliff side but I had not anticipated the lighting,
and upon hiking to the cliff I had remembered
that the sun does not set the stage for this area
until later in the afternoon. So, I had decided
to paint a scene of several boulders instead,
and wait for the sun to set the context for later.

This location in the greenbelt is the place
that I was introduced to plein air painting,
almost three years ago. I decided to take
another visit now that I'm more experienced
at painting. I've tried painting this cliff area
several times in the past but the results
weren't too pleasing. This time I'm happy
with my attempt.
