Red and Gold

Red and Gold

This is a 16x20 oil on canvas.


I am trying to push my use of colour. The colours in the photos of my paintings are not as vivid as in real life as my camera distorts them.

The wheat is a lot more golden than what is showing. I try to complete my paintings in an average of 2 - 3 days to maximize brushstrokes and minimize details.

Thank you

Hi Puppy,

You building looks very nice and it reminds me of my holidays in Canada.
I saw a lot of those red farms and barns.
I made photographs of them and they are on my list to be painted one day.

Well done.

Hi Puppy:
Nice clean painting.Love the background trees and sky.I think a little shadow under the roof would add a nice effect, and maybe lighten the front building a bit where it meets the back building to bring it forward. Just my thought.
