Sycamores in a Dry Wash (en plein air) By David Forks

12"x16" Oil on panel

I painted this scene en plein air on the Rocker U Ranch, northwest of Del Rio, Texas on November 14th and 15th. I started it late afternoon of the 14th and had to come back to the spot the next afternoon for the same lighting to complete it. I was drawn to this scene by the play of light and shadow across the dry river bed and the beautiful shapes and colors of the Sycamores in their dressy fall foliage.
