Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'In the Heat of Summer'
Oil on Linen Panel
9 x 12

I love to drive and take a road that I am
not familiar with in the hopes that I will find an
interesting place to paint.  The day I found this
farm, it was blistering hot, and yet those daylilies
in the foreground fields kept blooming profusely!

If you would like to see more of my work,
please visit my website or my blog. If you are
interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.

I loved the way you took the horizon to the upper half and dealt with the fore ground with utmost ease, splendid!

Ah yes, I can do with some summer scenes right now! This is a very pleasant scene!

Thanks so much, Carol I liked the way the orange daylilies made the foreground pop.

Thanks so much, Padmaja. I liked way the high horizon of this gave me lots of foreground to work on depth.
