“Late Afternoon Bricks”


6”x8”     Oil     Canvas Board

Today’s painting is quite a change from my recent plein air subjects. We set up our easels in a downtown parking lot late in the day rather than by the river or in a park. I really enjoyed the challenge of trying to capture this little urban scene in only 60 minutes. I especially like the oranges and yellows against the October sky. Not much detail…only enough time for the overall impression. I think it needs more power lines which I’ll add after it dries a little.


  1. DId you paint this in Fargo, den?? it looks like Taos or someplace like that.. love it.. I love using orange and yellow....

  2. Thanks, Judi. Yes, it was painted just south of Main Avenue. My sister said it reminded her of Mexico. Who knew?
