Quiet Afternoon

Quiet Afternoon                    8" x 10"                         oil on panel

A painting will sometimes dictate where it's going at times, and that was the way with this one. I had in mind something with a bit more spark and contrast to it. But, as I worked with close values in the sky, I realized it was more about just looking out to enjoy a peaceful place and appreciating  quiet afternoon.

So true Mary. Wish I was sitting on that mountain side. And I could just get lost in the sky........

You make your clouds appear as if they are moving - same as when you paint water. This one is wonderful, Mary and love the flecks of warm peeping through.

So, so true! Sometimes paintings just have a mind of their own! I sometimes start with a certain idea in mind but end up with something very different from that initial concept. I like the colours in this landscape and how you showed distance and scale!
