From The West

There is a simplicity to this painting. Often it is a struggle to enlarge a small painting ( see Westerly Clouds below) to a larger format, but this went smoothly; it flowed easily. I wish the photo was better, the lower part of the sky is quite lavender in colour, but I am not sure that is coming through. In person, the distant strip of canola pops against that purple in the low horizon. Colour is fun that way.

This little painting is the inspiration for "From The West".
