The Wild West

The Wild West
24" x 30" - acrylic on canvas  SOLD
I decided to work again with the west coast landscape photo I posted the other day - and after two days of painting, this is the result. If you compare them you will see that the photo provided the structure and the tree-reflection shapes, but the colour was my own exuberant invention. It was fun to paint and gave me the boost I needed as I prepare for my upcoming painting trip at the end of the month. 
I actually worked on a second painting while busy with this one. Going back and forth between two (or more) helps to stop me from getting too obsessive, and tight. Will show you that one tomorrow.
