This original oil painting is inspired by the coastal farmland in the Crescent City area. I decided to take an ordinary, gloomy day and make it appear to be fall to give some color to this scene. Warm tones of orange, red, yellow and greens are much more inviting! Painting in oils is a great medium for creating texture in foliage on trees and grasses. I strive to make bold brushwork in the impressionist style.
