"My Favorite Time Of Year", plein air oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"My Favorite Time Of Year", plein air oil painting, 12 x 16"
$695 framed, FREE S&H

This is also my favorite painting of this fall. It is really too bad that I didn't get more opportunities to paint out while the leaves were still in full colour. I also didn't get very far on my quest to paint large outside, although this IS large for a plein air, but I wanted to do some 16x20" ones. Next year.

Yippee!!! I had my best Calyx show EVER yesterday. Thank you to all my great friends for coming by to support me. Hopefully our Calyx show in Edmonton on Nov 6th will be a great one also.

Enjoy!

This is a beautiful scene. I love the dark trees in the upper part of the painting. They provide a very effective contrast to the autumn foliage. Love the overall soft colors of this painting. Very appealing!

Love those dark tree shapes in the background. Also, love the pieces of sky coming through the tree on the right.

Hello Virginia and Karen. Thanks so much for the kind compliments. I am drawn to strong contrasts in a scene almost as much as I am to great colour. It is really fun to push it to see how far I can take it!

Love the composition - it leads the viewer right through the painting. Color is always strong in your stuff... no exception here. The lavendar/yellow zings...

Sharon,
Beautiful colors and you simplified the subject nicely.

Thank you Cheryl and Katie. Simplifying a scene seems much easier to do plein air than from a photograph for me.
