|Evening light on the farm, 10" X 10", Acrylic on canvas, Sold|
This is a farm that is right across my neighborhood street. I took a picture of this scene in the evening. The sun was casting bright red orange highlights on the trees.
I like the three pines to the left, the most. Their tops glimmer with the sun's rays.
The poles create perspective and lead your eye into the painting. The house structure is done simply using three colors, a bright white for the sunlit area, a warm dark grey for the roof and a cool purple for the shadow area.
The grass has few details and some hint of purple flowers to add interest and color contrast.
