Outdoor Painting in Early Spring in the White Mountains

Here are some paintings I made outside during those 85 degree days in March. No need for bug spray!

Erik Koeppel "Mt. Madison from the Peabody River" 10 x 16 inches, Oil on canvas 2012

Erik Koeppel, "Jackson Falls" 11x14 inches, Oil on panel

Erik Koeppel, "Thorn Mt., Jackson, NH" 7x14 inches, Oil on panel
Notice that I was excited for Spring and added the leaves into the bottom two paintings. In the Thorn Mt. I also added the fallen log, and apple tree, for a more dynamic foreground. I try not to let what I'm seeing stop me from making the painting that I envision.

Thank you!
