As the Light Faded

Painting Oil on Linen  
8 x 8 in

This early evening narrative has a balance of realistic and abstract shapes. I toned with mixtures of Transparent Oxide Red and Quinacridone Red in the sky. Then, gradually added Viridian to this mixture in the middle and foregrounds. The tone is an important ingredient in my paintings. If it’s off, the painting is almost assuredly spoiled.

Presented in a traditional gold frame.
