New Work: Gold Progressions

Gold Progressions  oil on canvas, 48 x 48 inches
Sold, private collection

This oil is a variation on my Blue Progression images. For this oil I reversed the image and worked in a much warmer palette. Adding greys to the colors behind the trees created a shimmering effect in the yellows and blues that doesn't fully show here. 

I liked turning the yellows loose in the field but I was careful not use the same yellows for the skies. Each yellow area has it's own character and the yellows don't subtract power from each other.
