Spruce Knob Road is about two miles from my studio in Middletown Springs. At least half that as the crow flies.

I spent three glorious days painting here last week, perfectly smitten with the view and blessed with good weather.

The first “Spruce Knob” painting lead to a second larger piece, shown below.

Many thanks to my friends and neighbors for your permission and participation!

    WOW, Peter! The first painting is beautiful; the second is breathtaking! Those must have been spectacular & glorious days for you to enjoy & create. The results certainly reflect that.

    A great position from which you painted these wonderful scenes. Bravo!

    Just loving the Fall Colors this year, Here in Minnesota too. I hope to visit Vermont someday to see your glorious autumn in person. I love them both but favor the 2nd.

    Just what I needed today! Our colors in this part of North Carolina won’t peak until Nov 1!

    A double delight…the grande dame…and her petite little sister…both brashly seducing viewers with vivid explosions of Autumnal sensuality. Honestly, Peter…you should be arrested for evoking such delightfully sinful thoughts from your admirers. Have you no shame?

    God made it easy giving you so many colors to choose from. Life doesn’t get any better than this!

    Hallo Peter. Das große Querformat tut dem Panorama gut. Das Tal erscheint weitläufiger und sanfter. Mittelgebirge eben, eingetaucht in leuchtende Herbstfarben. Besonders das Orange der Blätter im Vordergrund links vor dem hellen Kirchturm zieht den Blick ins Bild hinein. Das gedämpfte Gelb über dem Dickicht am rechten Bildrand bildet ein Gegengewicht, das den Blick zurück in die Mitte lenkt. Dort setzen sich die Orangetöne der Dächer vor den Gelbtönen der Wiese im Mittelgrund fort bis zum Hintergrund.
    Stimmig abgeschlossen wird die Farbharmonie durch die gedämpften Grüntöne der herbstlichen Landschaft und das bräunliche Rosa der Bergflanke vor dem kräftigen Blau des Gebirgskamms, der das Tal abschließt. Die aufziehenden Wolken in lasierenden Rosa – und Gelbtönen verstärken die Luftperspektive und leiten den Blick des Betrachters in die Ferne. Sehr gelungenes Panorama des hübschen Tals in deiner Nähe.
    Herzliche Grüße aus Duisburg.
