Country House

Here is my latest landscape painting, an oil pastel (11×14) of a country house with a canola field in the foreground.    In person the sky is lighter with pastel colors, couldn’t get a decent photograph with my Coolpix – it may be because of the amount of yellows in the piece.

Hopefully bringing a bit of sunshine to your winter days ~

  1. This is a beautiful painting Mary and I can feel the light breezes coming off of the canola fields. Such a serene setting that you have painted so beautifully. Such wonderful soft colors and textures. I bet you never wanted to leave this spot.

    I want to be there right now….living a simple life. I always admire paintings of landscapes, I am to abstract to paint them, the detail is so perfect, and the colors are perfect, very good!

    I like the texture of the Paris green grass in the foreground. It’s like an undulating carpet of sun-bright greenery.

      Good morning Ariel’s Prospero – I am so glad that the green appealed to you. The greens were a combination of many colors and layers, working side-by-side w/the yellows it’s a more vibrant field than I’m used to working with. I enjoyed spreading and smearing the fusion of colors.

    Please can I book room overlooking the field Mary ???
    It did the trick this lovely painting 🙂

  6. I could easily just climb over the rims of the frame and stroll through the fields up to the house – and open the door. Lovely

    Wow that looks so much like the home we lived in when I was really young in Indiana. All you need is a big river on the far left edge of the painting. And we had corn or soy bean, rather than canola, fields. So nice! I love your variety.

      Hi Cyndi, no kidding?! I’m so glad the painting reminded you of a place in time, that makes me happy to read that. Thank you for the wonderful comment!!

  11. Yes, thanks for the sunshine Mary-charming.

      Hi Elena, thank you very much for your wonderful comment! Wish I could have adjusted the camera to reflect what it looks like in person, ah well. Thanks for your great encouragement.
