Jimmy Longacre_Texas impressionist landscape paintings_HAZY DAYS

Another one of my plein air paintings from last week's Coastal Paintout in Port Aransas. This was a hazy day, and I was interested in the effect of the backlit scene. Because the sun was behind the house it created a very nice foil for hi-lighting the profusion of sunflowers at the fenceline. The flowing curve of the mowed lawn also presented a useful shape emphasizing the focal area.
