Plein Air with SWOPA
I found a position under some trees just off the green for hole #2 of the golf course. This is the view of a knob with trees, with the green out of view below and to the right of the painting. Foreground left are the women's tees for hole #8, with the men's tee to the right of the cart path jog and out of the painting. The seventh green is below the silhouetted tree, with the ornamental grass between it and the cart path at top right.
I set the timing of this "View Across 2 and 8", 12" x 16", Oil on Canvas, at about 6:00P, about two hours into the session. The area was all almost in direct shadow, but secondary lighting came from the glowing haze in the air.
