  • Painted en plein air on 8/12/20 & 8/13/20 at Lower Huron Metropark
  • Thistle
  • Tulip Tree

Painting en plein air drives me to constantly search for new subjects and to learn more about what is around me. I have walked the trails time and time again at Lower Huron Metropark, but I had somehow always overlooked the Tawata Trace area. On the evening that I happened upon it, I was struck by the violet glow of a large thistle patch, the rising Tulip Tree behind it, and the setting sun's last kiss on the tree tops in the background. I set to work on this painting to capture the scene. I painted this using the Yellow-Green/Orange/Purple Minor Chord of the Dudeen Color Triangle.
