Vermont Fall Foliage Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
Day 5 – Stowe, VT
Inspired and created on the last day of our New England Fall Foliage Art Trek that my husband, Scott Williams, and I taught. We painters stayed just outside our B&B to capture the beautiful views of fall foliage, in all its splendor. I decided to paint this view out back, since I’d been admiring it every day of the trip. It was a gorgeous morning with vibrant fall colors frosting the flora. This set of Adirondack chairs was so inviting. The scene just welcoming me to sit, relax and enjoy the view. Long side lighting created dramatic shadows and a glow illuminated the grasses. I hope you too can escape and rejuvenate with me!
While we painted, everyone else went into Stowe to shop, explore, and photograph some more. After a wonderful morning and lunch we said our good-byes and hoped to meet again soon on a future Art Trek.
