Golden - late day light on the river

Golden                               oil                      9" x 9" 
This is a pretty straight forward river scene, but my motivation was to capture the light. Late day golden light makes all the greens so warm. I used Cad. orange and yellow in the mixes  for color that floods across the fields from the sun, as it starts to go down. The blue in the more shadowed areas really pops and yet stays light as it reflects the sky overhead.

The subtle colors creates a nice quiet mood.

I love your River scenes, Mary! The texture is wonderful as well as the colors. I always appreciate "pointers" on the colors you use since I'm new to oils..just learning how to use my colors. This is beautiful!!
