Prairie Puddles, oil on linen, 24"x30"
For several months now I have been working on a concept of cumulus clouds over a prairie setting. A few studio oil studies for this concept have been recently posted, and many drawings have been created that I have not posted. Though the landscape is simple, the composition was one of the more challenging concepts I have recently tackled. Distance is the focal point of this painting. I want the viewer to feel he or she can walk into the painting and walk forever, while the clouds above create intervals of sun and shade as they progress on their journey. I regret to say this photo does not do justice to the beautiful colors and incredible texture achieved in this painting. The clouds and blue sky are loaded with a variety of loosely painted thick and thin brush strokes. The grasses were built up with thick brush strokes and layers of glazing and scrumbling.
