25 minute plein air, 27

The evening I painted this was rainy and cold. I could see my breath. I set up my easel on the back porch to stay dry. This is a quick study of 25 to 30 minutes and is an 8" X 10" oil painting. I did a few value adjustments in the foreground later. It got darker and darker as I painted and pretty soon I was painting in the dark so I could not see the values of my darks...that is why I needed to adjust the values in the foreground.
