An Original Plein Air Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Bits of Light'
Gettysburg Festival Art Colony  2012
10 x 8

On the last day of the Gettysburg Festival Artist Colony,
we decided to go to Little Round Top to paint
in the morning light.  It was a beautiful day, and I
really enjoyed painting this area that was directly
to the left of the 12th and 44th New York Infantry
Marker - also called the 'castle'.  I liked the impressionistic
look of the scene, and tried to capture that.

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see

Claire, what a great job you did at Gettysburg. This one is my favorite. I really like the colors you have in your boulders. And, just like the impressionists, you captured that light.

Thanks so much, Pat. I had a great time painting that day!

The bits of light peeping through the trees does first catch one's attention even without this title, lovely!
