Harvest Time

Harvest Time
Originally uploaded by linfrye
It seems everywhere we went yesterday, 'harvest' is an emphasis.

With little time to paint, I sketched these from a photo I took during a visit to Raleigh's Farmers Market ...

The cool evenings have begun to change the foliage colors in earnest ....I even spotfed a few reds yesterday!

Hi just visited your blog... your paintings are lovely... where are you located in NC that you are seeing some color?

We stayed in Franklin last year and I just loved it...

I am adding you to my favorites... Come by and visit me

Beautiful basket and shadow!!! It is getting cool here...I wore gloves on my morning walk yesterday!

Nice sketch, Lin. Like the surface the basket is lieing on. It shows you can handle the brush and color well.

Thank you for your coment about shadows on my painting. Well, I wasn't even sure about their position. Also thx for the tip about darkening part of the shadow. :))

Have a nice week.

Harvest themes abound here, too. This is really lovely, and I loved your flower bouquet, also!
