First Hay of Summer...progressing

We were there before 7am to begin painting the first cutting of Summer hay. Getting an early start to beat the heat is a must. It was 97 degrees later in the day. This is an 8"x10" oil on RayMar panel painted en plein air. At the time of the photo, it was still progressing but was finished alla prima. I just haven't taken the finished photo yet. Since this area seems to be famous for its "North Georgia green green", I often push colors into their blue or yellow zones.

Hi BJ! Thanks for your comment on my blog. You have a lot going on in Georgia. Your paintings are terrific. Even here in Wisconsin the weather is hot. Getting an early start is a good idea.
