"Forest on Fire" - SOLD



Click Here to Bid (will begin Saturday, 9/12/09, 8pm, pst)

I find it very difficult to paint "through the trees" views like this. This was my third attempt. This is a scene I saw walking back from painting "Im Schwarzwald." There is a clearing just up the hill that is being lit up brightly by the sun, and the row of trees behind it is turning blueish/purple from atmospheric perspective. I'm really happy with it. Tomorrow we are going to Freiburg for a couple of days. I will post again on Tuesday.

Wonderful landscapes Carol, I just LOVE how straight forward you are in your writing and your painting... I hadn't visited for a few days and wow, what a treat.

I find that particularly challenging too - but I'm so drawn to it I keep trying! I think you captured the feel of the light coming through so well! Have a great time painting in Freiburg:)
