Rattlesnake Ridge

Rattlesnake Ridge in Green / 12 x 16 in / oil on stretched canvas

Above and below are two landscape paintings from Rattlesnake Ridge with very different color schemes. We love to troops around there (rather carefully around the rocks).

Sun on Spring Trees / 6×8 in / oil on wood

I took a break from my big paintings today to do this landscape painting. I was trying to figure out the color scheme of this spring/winter scene. The sky is yellow in the painting – it doesn’t come through in the photo.

Sun Through Spring Trees

Sun On Spring Trees / 6×8 in / oil on wood / $180

This is another painting of the same scene from yesterday. Yesterday I painted a bit of the river that was unobscured by the trees, and today I painted a bit that is obscured by trees. I find through the trees scenes difficult to paint, but I really enjoy them. I like this painting – the horizontal planes in the background and the vertical silhouette in the foreground, and that pallet. I am starting to really enjoy this extremely limited pallet.(#3330)
