Sunset Wheat Field
Oil on linen on panel, 8 x 10 inches -- SOLD
I painted this one a while ago, but finally finished it for my next show. I was driving with my friends after a day trip of plein air painting in the country side back toward their home in Spokane, WA, and we saw this sunset scene in the middle of wheat field. So we pulled over to the shoulder of an empty road to set up our easels. I had less than a half hour, or maybe 20 minutes to do a basic sketch and cover the entire canvas with oil colors. I wanted to record at least the colors based on my observation. Then, in my studio, I painted it over with my imagination.
