Evening's Glow

Voy Kay 03 Feb 2020
Evening's Glow

Canvas used was a 16"x20". I wanted something with that glowing sky where you go from yellow to ochre to red to brown .... and all gets blended into a very soft unity. Well, blended a little too much I think since about all my brown is gone! I never liked the trees on the right from Bob so replaced them with giant evergreens, much to my satisfaction. The center feels somewhat empty though, maybe I forgot to fill things up with the distant hills? Very happy with the cabin and the pathway. To break the monocity of the grass, I added a small fence which I believe has a very nice effect. Please enjoy!

Very nice transition from background to the front. Those hills at the back are soft and fluffy. Very nice barn and fence!

Thank you Sunnylady! I really wanted somehing rather simple this time so feel upon this painting. My next one from Bob will be far more complex and hope to achieve an excellent creation with it. Till soon!

I haven’t seen this yet. Nice work, especially the background hills and the sky are very nice. I plan to do this with oils. Do you remember if it was very complex?

Dear Tom, this is an easy one to do. The only catch is the center (hills/river) where Bob leaves some space open which I believe should be filled up a little more, so that everythings fits together better.
I hated Bob's tree on the right so did put an evergreen in there (your choice). And either you make the cabin a lot bigger or else put in a fence (like I did) because it looks a bit too empty otherwise.

In all, a rewarding painting, specially with that glooming sky!
Best of luck!!!
