|Tamaracks 12" x 12", acrylic on canvas|
I just completed this painting this weekend. It is intended for a local art show. (Sold at the show. Thank you art collector.)
I enjoy taking photographs of the area especially when there are big thick clouds in the sky. It makes for a dramatic painting. Right now there aren't many leaves on the trees and the grass is a bit dry looking, but I can't resist painting the landscape when the colours are so fabulous. I'm sure most people would think that once the leaves are off the trees everything is so brown. I really don't see it that way. The colours are really speaking to me right now. Today while out for a drive I was enjoying the blue hills in the distance, the purple hue from the deciduous and the light ochre grass.
This painting was created from a recent photograph I took in the area. I hope you enjoy it.
