Creek View SOLD

This painting was inspired by a trip to the Oregon Coast.  There were lots of hills along the coast and hundreds of creeks fed from those hills and crossed the highway towards the ocean. Because I enjoy focusing on the distance, I have to work out how to represent the near view and the far view all in the same painting.  Even though, in reality, the near greens and the far greens were not that different, I pushed the far view back by making those colors lighter, bluer and less contrasty.
