"One Lane Bridge" oil landscape painting from Amish country

This painting was done from a very vague photograph which I intentionally used to keep the painting impressionistic..I'm not quite sure I have conveyed enough information to make a good painting yet. I will probably go back into this one at some point.

The preliminary sketch. Two Amish boys walking down the road in Holmes county Ohio.

I always love to see the transition from inspiration to creation.

Really nice work on the figures and shadows. Feels rather Sargent-like.

The light in this is just right. You nailed the color key! I love it. :)

Thanks Patrice! Funny you mentioned Sargent...I referenced his landscape figures when I was trying to capture the reflected light in the faces....don't think I got it ...but I appreciate the kind comments..=]
