The Green Green Grass Of Home

I am a big Constable fan and love to use varied greens in landscape work.
This piece is typical of rolling countryside. The cloudcover had so much character that it was fun and challenging all at the same time.

I called this Acrylic painting (16 by 20 inches)

The Green Green Grass of Home





Thanks
John

Re: The Green Green Grass Of Home

A nice, simple statement with great aerial perspective captured in those receding clouds - The 'lead-in' & 'lead out' to the scene creates an inviting composition - Well Painted !

Your capture of distance is very believable. That's hard to do and you pulled it off in convincing fashion. The sky is outstanding!! A truly wonderful painting!

Re: The Green Green Grass Of Home

From one Constable fan to another, I can definitely see the Constable influence. I came into the post viewing the painting first and thought, this has a Constable feel to it, then I scrolled up and read your comment.
Very nicely painted, I like the richness of the field, the rendering of the clouds, sky and trees.
