Gold Hills Wide



Acrylic on Canvas

Having recently sold two versions of similar paintings, I went back to my reference photos and decided to try a larger one. Much larger. 30 x 10 inches. I just made sure to not use anything smaller than a half-inch brush, and tried to rush along and keep things loose and fresh.

I think I need a little more room to be able to back up from something this large while I'm painting it.

I like your landscape, Gringo! I wish you could post it larger. Love how you handled the trees, light and shadow.

Gringo...this is GORGEOUS! Love that sunny swath, the depth you've created, the brushwork, the vertical format. Stunning!

Wow! There you go.... this is the culmination of all that work before. Way to go Big G!
