On the Road

Road Trip, 36x48, acrylic

I have often found that some of the best subject matter is seen as we fly by in the car. We were on our way to Sunpeaks near Kamloops last thanksgiving. Fall was in the air and the colours were turning the hillsides many beautiful shades. As I have said before I like to pull the viewer into a scene using trails etc, so I thought maybe a road would work. It is the first time I have done this, maybe more will follow. It is a large piece and I kept the palette quite subdued, mostly blues and orange with some cad red and yellow. I first had too much colour at the sides, I greyed that down to pull the attention into the painting. I took this one to the Rendezvous Gallery in Vancouver. Unfortunately this image has washed out the blues in background, but at least it gives you the idea.
