Honeoye Lake Heat

"Honeoye Lake Heat" - 12"x 18"  pastel

One super hot day this summer, I found this beautiful little park at the northern end of Honeoye Lake in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate NY.  There is an absolutely spectacular view straight down the lake.  When I painted this in August, I knew I wanted to enhance the intensity of the color in the sky.  It was a hot, humid day with loads of haze and some of the color was lost. Today was the day to take care of that issue!  Punched up the color and now it's finished.

Last of the Snow

Last of the Snow - 12 x 16  Available
After I finished posted the demonstration from the other day, I knew I would need to correct the color in the final image of the painting.  The camera had not done a good job of getting those colors right.  The colors were WAY too cool!  So here is the color corrected version.  

Can be viewed at the Pat Rini Rohrer Gallery in Canandaigua, NY.
