Color Study 1

Prospect Cemetery Prairie, Ford County, Illinois
June 28, 2022
Oil on canvas
9 x 11 in. (22.9 x 27.9 cm)


I wanted to see how the method I employ for painting prescribed fire in situ (very quick) translates to painting the colors of blooming remnant prairie, also in situ. Flowers in this study include New Jersey tea, lead plant, pale coneflower, and others.
