New Oil: Golden Moment Against the Reds, 48 x 48 inches
Oil on canvas, 48 x 48 inches
I worked up this composition from a small oil I did some months ago. In this large version there is much more depth and power throughout.
After going through a lot of permutations, I came back to this simple arrangement that allows the best interplay of the reds, yellows and contrasts of the trees. This oil has been in the studio for a couple of months and it underwent a lot of painting sessions, but the work remained fresh and kept its subtle power.
I'm assembling the progressive photos of this oil into a little presentation that illustrates how this painting came together. I'll post it here in the next few days.
Note: I'll be teaching my oil and pastel workshop on the Strategies for Making Fine Art in Denver, Sat-Sun, July 21-22 Complete info
