Canola Field - Landscape Oil Painting

Canola Field - 6x6" Oil on cradled wood panel

Painting is providing me with a much needed break from work at the moment.

The setting sun is lighting up the side of the barn and small sheds in this painting. I love canola fields. They provide an opportunity for more more colourful paintings. I find that I enjoy painting these small 6x6' panels. They can be completed fairly quickly, which is a good thing right now.

Sometimes the photograph doesn't show the true qualities of the painting. This one is very close.

These wood cradled panels are first sealed, then primed with 2 coats of gesso, then 2 coats of burnt sienna. This one is .75" deep.
