Big Blue Sky

40" x 48" oil on canvas.

I wanted to see if I could make an interesting painting with the main subject in just a strip on the bottom. So the colors of the houses and stuff are fairly intense in this painting but I think they work pretty well.

Detail #1. There's a very slight value difference between the sky on the right and that on the left.

Detail #2. Here you can see the use of color that makes the houses and fields interesting. They could be pretty bland otherwise.

Detail #3. I tried to make these palm trees read as palm trees even though they're shaped kind of like Q-Tips.
