"Road into Ranch Country"
5 x 7" oil painting
Today's small daily painting contrasts warm and cool colors in paint selections. This original oil painting depicts the typical road into rural properties in southern Oregon. The hot summer dries the small pastures, but the evergreen trees keep their green canopy over the dusty roads behind the locked gates. The high mountains form the background of these typical scenes.
Notice how bright and warm the yellow colors are, especially next to the cool greens and blue greens. Did you see the distant hills and mountains in blues and lavenders? I painted this in an impressionistic painterly style to show the lack of sharp focus definition of edges on really hot hazy days in this region.
