Wheatland Sunset

Oil on linen on panel, 12 x 9 inches --

I painted this a few years ago, but revisited it recently. It's a painting of wheat field in the rolling hills. Originally, I painted from my small field study from Steptoe Butte in Eastern Washington. Since this piece was still sitting in my studio, I decided to experiment with different techniques on it. I used more paint and added texture with brushes and a palette knife. I also simplified some shapes, and added a little bit of red to accentuate the foreground. Below is the same painting before the makeover.
