"Wyoming ranch"

It was our last day in Jackson and it was getting late. I took a drive south on 189 in hopes of finding subject matter for paintings. I happened on this scene and was taken by how the late afternoon sun was lighting the place from the rear. I was glad to get this on camera and have just completed painting it.
Comments welcome as usual. Donald.

"Wyoming ranch" 38" X 44" oil on canvas.

Re: "Wyoming ranch"

Man, I really LOVE this! I love this rough and unpolished feel. Nice size for that style too!

Re: "Wyoming ranch"

Thank you JD. You are right about unpolished. Polished is not my cup of tea. For me it is about shapes, color, light, you know all about it. :-)
DO'
Thanks again... :-)

Re: "Wyoming ranch"

I love it! Great style,..I like even better when I step 5 feet back. The values play so well here..nice warm to cool transition, and still getting that feeling of the sun in your eyelids thing...

Re: "Wyoming ranch"

That is an awesome painting! The brilliant backlighting looks great, and I love the colors across the ranch and trees and into the hills and sky.

Love the backlit bright, and dry feel of this- most definitely Wyoming!

Re: "Wyoming ranch"

I like the backlit feeling of calm. Not sure what the foreground is. Is that a cliff?

Re: "Wyoming ranch"

I am wondering how you got the pretty blue colour in the sky. I was driving out in the hills today and the sky was a soft turquoise blue with lilac/grey clouds, the two colours in the sky was quite unexpected and had lots of impact. I am so glad you found this location to paint it really is a very fine view which is very much a painter's dream with so much to see and paint. You have done a great job in the result of a very lovely painting.
