Along Old Friends

"Along Old Friends"
5" X 7" Oil on Panel
I'm really glad I painted this one. I love the results and even though this is a small painting this is to date my favorite one of this size. It started out as just a painting to try a different sky color and experiment with the colors and handling of the background trees. One good thing led to another and the foreground was finished up. I love the colors used in this one and the "feel" of the painting. I'll actually go with a larger version of this soon which I'm looking forward to painting. I enjoy paintings that start as one thing and then become something of their own by the end. A wonderful alla prima painting effort.


  1. Hi Ron, this is a great painting. Saw this first at the wetcanvas landscape forum. The wonderful treatment of edges and the atmospheric perspective make it look like a much bigger painting. Very inspirational. I subscribed to your blog to keep following your work.
    Cheers, Erik

  2. Hi Erik,
    Thanks a bunch for checking out the painting. This smaller painting went so well I painted a larger 18"x24" version yesterday alla prima...took about 4-5 hours. I was surprised how fast it went but it all just fell together. Thanks for following the blog too Erik...very cool!
