Footpath-

Footpath          10" x 8"         oil
I had in mind here to paint a landscape where the shadowed area in the foreground led the eye more naturally back into the painting and distant horizon. I used a sort of maroon and burnt sienna palette, and contrasted those with grayed blues and greens. A bit unusual for me, but I enjoyed the resulting composition and had fun with the experiement.
