Gettysburg National Military Park
An Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

 'Spring Morning on Little Round Top'
Gettysburg National Military Park
Oil on stretched canvas
18 x 24

Yes, I am still painting rocks...can't resist them!  This is done
from notes, sketches and photos I took while up at
Little Round Top at the Gettysburg National Military Park
earlier this Spring when the redbuds were blooming.  I
loved the way the morning sun was working its way
up over the rocks.

You are rockin! I love all the rocks, but especially that topmost one, it looks so real with that mossy undercropping. Nice one Claire!

You did an AMAZING job with these rocks, Claire. They look very natural. I can see why you like to paint them..Wonderful light and love the pink buds on the trees...EXCELLENT PIECE!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks so much, Pattie. It was so much fun to paint the character into those rocks!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Hilda - the light was the most important thing to me in this painting. The way it hit the rocks, made them even more interesting to paint!

Absolutely beautiful, Claire. I love the pink flowers in the distance. Such a gorgeous bit of spring right on your canvas. And your tick story is grosser than mine! LOL

J'ai très envies de sautiller sur vos blocs de pierre... J'aime la lumière qui vient parcimonieusement les éclairer. Il n'est pas simple de peindre les rochers. Et pour couronner le tout cette enfilade d'arbres est sublime.
Très jolie peinture.
Gros bisous

Your rocks really rock :-)
The top most rock has given a lot of depth n distance, makes me try to look beyond!

this is lovely, reminds me muchly of some of the scenery around here...

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Sherry! Your picture of the tick reminded me of my awful experience. Imagine what a horror it was to be driving down the road and to suddenly realize I had ticks on my face...

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thanks so much, Padmaja!

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

Thank you, Kat. I just checked your blog and commented on your lovely landscape :)

Merci, Martine. J'ai grimpé sur un grand nombre de ces roches sur le champ de bataille de Gettysburg moi-même! La lumière ce jour-là était si belle, et j'ai adoré la façon dont il effleurait les rochers - si content que vous remarqué.
