Late Summer

Late Summer - oil on canvas - 24x24 inches
Working with so much green is a challenge. Green is a tricky colour to get right in nature.  The breeze blowing the first of the leaves about the yard suggested late summer, so....I used lots of orange in the greens too.  The subject is loosely based on our yard.


  1. This painting is just lovely. It is very much our backyard. Really love the colours

  2. You did a great job with the greens Sally! It has a nice breezy feel to it.

  3. Hey Holly,
    Thank you, glad you like it!

  4. hi Wendy,
    I think Robert Genn's art letter was talking about greens in painting a couple of posts back...and so that was in my head as i was mixing the greens for the grass, to use lots of orange, and it seemed to do the trick.

  5. Love it. I love your green.

    XO Barbara


Go ahead...make my day. I love our mini-mails!
