Small Color Study for Kerry Fields

5"x7" oil on gessoed masonite artboard

"In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing."
- Theodore Roosevelt

Today's painting is "Small Study for Kerry Fields". Just a small study (5x7") for a much larger landscape scene (24"x36") that I also blocked in this afternoon. Once you land in Shannon airport, Ireland- we head west and approach mountains to the left of us. The distant hills rise up into the mist and the valley is marked off into a beautiful patchwork. Among the varied green squares the are flocks of sheep. Early to mid-summer there are still young ones bounding around, chomping circles around the older ones! I did the small one today as a color study for this larger painting! I got the larger one blocked in & it looks like it will be fun!
