madewood plantation

I stayed one night and did two paintings at Madewood Plantation in Napoleanville. This was the first one and I only just had time to block in the composition before the sun went down. I'm working the color here from memory, the bright white of the plantation house backlit by the even brighter sky, and cool colors prevailing. So many of the paintings I did there are in a very warm palette so this is a nice change! oil on canvas, 24 by 36
