Green Hills

Oil on Stretched Canvas

This was from a photo from the Wet Canvas Image Reference Library. Thank you to whomever posted it. I loved how the hills were interesting shapes and all different colors of vivid greens, and I wanted to capture that. The photo had an abstract, surreal quality to it as well.

I did this with a knife, using the method I learned from Susan Sarback. I am very happy with out this one came out.

I love green and this one is my favorite painting so far, so I think I will keep it. For me, this is like looking into an emerald and seeing all the pretty colors. I think for other people, it seems to be too bright.
