Landscape - Oil Painting - Mississippi Delta


Finally, back to painting! I have been asked to try some oil landscapes. So, here's my attempt. These are oil on wood panel with 1" cradle. I will be working on creating larger pieces so these are works to get the color and scale comfortable. These are done with a palette knife only which keeps me from getting too much detail and not so "tight" as my watercolor animal portraits.

Landscape - Oil Painting - Delta Sun


This is a typical scene directly across from my farm. Sometimes when I paint these sunsets I think that no one will believe the colors that are delivered on a daily basis. They simply amaze me and I look forward to the view every evening.
