Painting a Day: Concord Field


This sun-drenched field with its first touches of Autumn is just outside Concord, Massachusetts. Although it lies on the edge of Metropolitan Boston, Concord has retained much of its rural character and historic ambience (for instance, the site of Paul Revere's capture by the British after his ride is about 200 yards down the road from where I painted). It's been about 2 months since I've done any plein air painting, and I have to say it's great to be out of the studio and under the open sky again.
