A View of Hartford, CT Plein Air Painting

A View of Hartford Plein Air Painting, painting by Jan Blencowe

Copyright 2009 Jan Blencowe, Connecticut, USA

About This Painting: Wickham Park in Manchester, CT provides this great view of the city of Hartford. Late in the afternoon after a full day of exploring the many gardens and sketching each one I settled down to paint. Soft hazy light enveloped the entire scene. To my right as I was painting a wedding reception was going on and I enjoyed their music the whole time I was painting!

The pointy building to the left is the Travelers Tower, owned by Travelers Insurance, the company my husband works for. Hartford, CT afterall is the insurance capitol of the world!

Style: Plein air Impressionism
Size: 8 in X 6 in (20.3 cm X 15.2 cm)
Price: $135 USD + $12 sh/h/ins in the USA
