Path To Heaven

Path To Heaven
48" x 48" Original Oil on Heavy Duty Canvas/Gallery Wrap
Contemporary Landscape
This is a neat size canvas.  It is large enough to go over a sofa, or just the right size for a medium to large wall space.  I really focused on the color palette for this painting.  It is natural for me to use vibrant, bold and contrasting colors when I paint.  I wanted a natural, harmonious, and earthy color scheme.  I was wanting to jazz it up with some blues, purples, reds and turquoise.  But to achieve a calm mood, I kept the colors under control.  The first thing I did was to paint in blocks of color with a very wide brush, then started layering in the mountains with a large palette knife.  I used two knifes for most of the application of paint.  It is layered on the canvas, and built up with lots of texture. Thanks for looking at this blog and my art.....Kay at or 214-532-0325.

  1. Kay, I really like your departure to a more earthy palette. It is contemporary but you can still tell what it is. This piece has more background than your usual art ................ I like it.
