4th Concession, Orono (another view)

4th Concession, Orono (11 x 14 in.) oil on canvas, by Carol Berry, copyright 2009

I painted this landscape a couple of years ago. We spend our summer weekends in the countryside, north of Newcastle, Ontario. I personally think that we are located on the most scenic road in the region. Over every hill is another picturesque view and I’m hoping to paint each of them en plein air starting this spring.

I used a photo I took on location as reference for this small painting. I love the diagonal patterns of the hayfield on the hill behind the farm. The fresh greens are almost monochromatic as this is early summer.
