Foothill Eve

"Foothill Eve"
5" X 7" Oil on Panel
Trying to capture the evening light across the mountains and trees in this scene. Evening light is always a great way to bring some drama into a painting and I enjoy trying to capture it. I don't like to push it too much. I like a somewhat subdued approach to scenes of this nature....let nature tell it's story instead of the painter.


  1. Just beautiful. I saw a hillside close to my home that reminds me of your compositions. I may give it a whirl... but yours are just lovely!!!

  2. Hi Gina,
    Thanks a should try that scene Gina. I've been watching you and Craig at your PA event and you really don't have any problem with various subject matter. I've seen your landscapes too so this would be a breeze for you. Excellent work at the PA event Gina...well done!
