Valdez

Another in my series of American landscape paintings "The Big Sky" the location for this is Valdez in Alaska with the wonderfully named Ammunition Island in the middle distance. I am starting to introduce more saturated colour into these monochromes, this one having some glazes of Prussian Blue and Winsor Green straight out of the tube. I'm not sure about this one, maybe a brave failure, not sure. Sometimes one is too close to one's own work to see if things are working or not, I was trying to get the glow that comes from this kind of sky...
Colours used were Prussian Blue, Winsor Green and Permanent Orange on a light green acrylic ground.
20" x 16" oil on linen.
