Afternoon

24x18
oil on 2" cradled panel

Ask Gardner Colby Galleries about this painting

I am so clever with titles. Not. Anyway - this is a larger bird's eye scene than I have ever done before. I love to paint these scenes as they are so simple and almost abstract. Its always fun to play with shadows. I think though that they have taught me how to fill in large empty spaces in interesting ways. With subtle shifts in temperature and color and by varying brushwork, the empty fields are not boring. Its also taught me to make interesting greys.

This week is spring break in central Texas and I sure wish I was able to visit Naples, FL for the opening this week. If you are in the area, go and tell me how this show is. I'd love to see all these artists work in person, and see their subjects. Would be very inspirational.

Hi Robin I love the subtle grays in this painting. I've started playing with them, too, in watercolor.

Une peinture intéressante de par sa prise de vue, sa composition et également par le travail prodigieux de vos nuances de couleurs qui jouent aussi avec la lumière et les ombres.

Je vous souhaite une belle visite et peut-être de très agréables rencontres.
Gros bisous

The birds eye view is wonderful and I love the angle you placed the truck in.
