Midwest Town in Winter
This plein air landscape watercolor was painted on a sunny day in winter. It depicts houses and trees near to the artist's home in the mid-west. The artist represents beautifully the effects of light and atmosphere on a sunny winter's day in this striking impressionist style painting. Using his trademark red pen-and-ink he is able to capture the starkness of the largely leafless trees, as well as depicting details such as the wooden rails and fencing of the dwellings.
