"Morning Fog" © San Luis Obispo Plein Air Festival
During the San Luis Obispo Plein Air Festival I left my hosts home at dawn every morning so I could set up my easel for the early morning light. I was driving out a ranch road in Arroyo Grande and saw the fog just lifting allowing the sunlight to backlight the distant trees. All the color in the fog was too much to pass up. The original painting has subtle hues of violet, viridian and ochre in the fog.
Oil on Linen Panel, 9" X 12"
This is how the little "Morning Fog" painting looked after I framed it for exhibition in the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art.
