Leetonia Road, en plein air, 12x9"

As we had done in other years, my family and I spent Labor Day weekend at a friend's camp in Leetonia, in northern Pennsylvania. This area is close to the Great Canyon of the East.

There was so much green everywhere that I did not feel like painting; after some thinking I realized I was afraid of failing even before starting. So basically, I forced myself to paint. This in turn forced me to look more carefully at the possibilities I had before me, and this partially sunlit road offered the most interesting subject.

I think the correct name of the road is Painter Leetonia Rd.

Excellent painting. Good that you done it at the last minute. Captured well!

Such a peaceful scene, Adriana. I love the shadow across the road and you did see more than just green!

sibi, I'm glad you like it! Thank you for stopping by and commenting.
Donna, Thank you! I had to emphasize those colors to make it look a little bit more interesting. I've also been tweaking it to convey a better sense of distance.
