Stand of Pines in Mud 003

This piece was done while away last weekend. Still experimenting with different monochromatic color schemes lead me to use these warm grays. Technically, is is the mud that is made from scraping my palette, mixed together and tubed. I like the colors of this piece, but the value of the sky is too light. This is a study, look for a larger piece with a darker sky!

  1. david,
    love this piece.
    the subtle color scheme applied w/ rich texture makes
    a potent combination.

  2. you gotta love the palette knife! it is an amazing tool, but the colors really make it or break it. I am itching to do a large piece in the same scheme.
