Yellow Field I, 2023, oil on canvas 27"x37"x1.5"
Original oil on canvas with frame size 27"x37"x1.5"
“The field’s beauty enhanced by drop of rain,
A clod fragrance distance from spring.”
Yellow is a strong color that in its pure state can enhance a landscape. In this oil painting, blue and purple are use in the distance to contrast the yellow foreground to create the space.
I like to paint the complexity of colors with a variety of strokes, layer after layer. From start to finish, each painting may take more than a month. I paint mainly with the palette knife to produce heavy textures and occasionally, in my final touches, use a brush.
