(Ft. Hunter, Susquehanna River)
Original Plein Air
Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Chance of Rain'
Ft. Hunter, Susquehanna River
Oil on Panel
8 x 16

Last Thursday I painted at Ft. Hunter, along the
Susquehanna River.  The day was overcast, with a chance
of rain in the weather predictions.  I particularly liked this
view of the river that included the receding mountains and
the cloudy sky.  Even in the more subdued tones, there
were still many different colors.

Below is a picture of my painting in progress.

So gorgeous, Claire! I love overcast days; they really make the greens sharp and beautiful. The blue/green palette is one of my favorites anyway, and this piece is splendous.
