The Colors of Early - SOLD

10" x 8" oil on canvas covered hardboard - painted en plein air, alla prima - SOLD -
Painted on August 23rd, an especially clear day, this painting bursts with colors of what might be called a late late Summer/early early Fall palette. The shadows were dark and the light was crisp and bold - just a wonderful day for painting en plein air. Contact me at

Subtle mauve flavour variation and green manips. Green manips being green manipulations or mixes. I think green is my favourite colour but I didn't realize it.

Mauve has been in the early morning sky every day for about 2 weeks now.

And of course there's always green here in the South. I use 2 yellows, 2 blues and 1 green (with restraint) on my palette. I can always add touches of reds to get about 1M shades of green - which is what we have here.

Yeah, I guess green is my favorite color, too, now that I think of it.
