This is located right out in the boonies of Utah as I don't particularly want to paint well-known or iconic landscape or urban locations as in the end these paintings are about colour and mood and not necessarily about the place itself.
I had a particular lighting situation in mind for this one, a bright moonlit landscape i.e. not too dark but still reading as night time. I think I've got it but not that sure, I didn't want it to look like a fantasy landscape yet I wanted a certain magical feel to it.... oh well on to the next one.
The whole picture has been painted pretty much with transparent colours, a direction that I will continue to explore.
Oil on linen 20" x 16".
There is a step-by-step progress through this painting including what colours I used in previous posts on this blog.
