|Up Bobolink Trail 6" x 8" Oil on oil primed linen panel|
I was inspired to paint this when a good FB photographer friend, Jack Sasson, posted a photo of this trail. I was drawn to the vast foreground with the rust and oranges within a frigid scene. The pinkish orange behind the barn.The heavy atmosphere in the distance.
I used a palette knife to achieve the flat crusty look of the snow.
I've painted a larger version which you can see in my gallery, titled "Bobolink Trail". This piece
is painted on stretched canvas and is framed within a floater frame.
You can see I redesigned adding a small creek and dropping tree shadows in causing some tension within the design. The blues and violets complimenting the oranges and pinks.
