Palo Duro Mid Day




"Palo Duro Mid-Day"_____6 x 8 oil on linen panel_____$150
Ah the red rock canyons of the west! Beautiful, but sometimes hard to paint! I think it's easier when the light is low and there are high contrasting shadows and a REAL DIFFERENCE in value and color....that's why I painted this at the MOST DIFFICULT (for me) time of day...Mid Day light is cool, flat and distinctive...and the distance is hard to convey. I think this one came out well, or I wouldn't be showing it! hahaha What do you think, Rick???
Tomorrow I will post one that I have painted while here in Colorado....if anything comes out OK! I am painting all day today and tomorrow...
