Hay Bales: Barley Fields II, Idaho Landscapes in oil

" Barley Fields: Hay Bales I "
Copyright 2010 J. Bellinger
11"x 14"
A plein air painting from last fall. I usually paint smaller panels outdoors, 6x8 or 8x10, but I felt brave that day. The larger size made me work faster, which is a goal of mine. Less dawdling, more decisive brushwork, palette knife, too.

Stunning! I see you were in touch with your inner Van Gogh that day. Wonderful shadows.

Wow, to be compared to Van Gogh even a tiny bit is a wonderful complement! Now to become as productive! Thanks, Gwen.

Your use of the blue-violets in this really makes it wonderful!
