Piece description from the artist
This is another master study I did during my oil painting workshop, in which we take a painting by an old master painter and paint our own version. This is a study of "Early Autumn, Montclair", painted in 1891 by American landscape painter George Inness. His paintings were quite enormous, leaving lots of room for detail, which he did utilizing the texture and stickiness of oil paint. This is my favorite painting by him, and I was quite excited to paint my own version of it. I learned a lot by doing this painting, and so did my students.
