Painting in Haddon Township, NJ

There are some many greens in a summer landscape. At this place near the river, they really filled your eyes with all their variety. This painting is pastel over watercolor under painting.

New Jersey Beach Scene

This painting was started on my annual painting trip to the beach with my friend Judy. It was a very hot day at Island Beach, NJ. I wanted to swim more than paint. I added more of the dark values later at home referring to the photo I took of the scene. Scenes on a popular summer beach are part landscape and part figure study, and all always in motion.

Stone Tavern June Morning

I have been out painting this summer, but not posting as much as I should. Here is one of my favorite landscapes in New Jersey, Stone Tavern Lake. It is part of Asumpink wildlife reserver. Right near my home in Roosevelt. It is a water color of the first morning light.
