Mustard Fields and Black Oaks

My first morning out doing Plein Aire painting.
What attracted me to this scene was the contrasts between the mustard fields and the dark oaks in the valley. This is so tipical of Sonoma County in Spring.
Can't wait to get out again for another Plein Aire session.
11 x 14 Watercolor on Paper.


  1. HI Mary,

    I love your work, especially your plein aire. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing more of your paintings on WC!


  2. Maria, I've missed you! This landscape is stunning.

  3. Thank you John for you comment. I loved your blog and you little paintings are delightful.

    Hi Bell. I haven't been doing any acrylics for a while, so haven't posted in that forum.
    I do drop by and read but don't comment much.
    Thanks for the comment.

  4. Hi Maria! I've given you an award over on my blog! Thanks for inspiring me!
