Chickamauga Battlefield Trail by BJ Wright

10" x 8" oil on linen panel, painted en plein air, alla prima on June 16th (completed around 9:30am) - $85 including shipping - contact me at beejw@charter.net for purchase. Sandra and I painted in Chickamauga Battlefield Park that cool morning, but the temperature was climbing fast. This trail is used by hikers, bikers and people on horseback as they explore the many acres of this beautiful Northwest Georgia park. The red Georgia clay appeared with lots of pink that morning - so that's how I painted it.

BJ,
I hadn't seen this after you tweaked it! I like the colors you developed.

Thanks, Sandra! I kept thinking it was too pink, but when I'd hold up my paintbrush to compare, that's the color I saw.

Chickamauga Battlefield is an endless vista of great scenes. You'd never run out of something to paint here. Thanks for the support :o)
