I painted this one yesterday in one shot. I never intended it to be this minimal, but something is telling me to stop. This photo was taken under studio lights, unfortunately. It’s been a dark and rainy week here. Colors used: Italian yellow ochre, ultramarine blue, burnt umber and titanium zinc oxide. All Williamsburg brand paints.

Lovely landscape – I think you were right to leave it when you did :-)
Thank you, Maxine. I appreciate your comments very much. : )
Beautiful work, looks complete, I feel that there’s a certain kind of peace in this, anymore work and it may be broken.
Thanks so much, zwong! I think I will leave it be. Thanks so much for commenting.
Looks very rothkoesque :) loving the colors
Thank you Chandana. I hadn’t thought of Rothko, but I guess there might be some connection. Most often people at open studios tell me they see a bit of Turner in my paintings. Anyway, I’m flattered : )
Yeah, agree witht he above. A lovely feeling of space and time. Makes me feel as though I’m sitting on the beach just looking out. Thankyou. Tony
Hi Tony and thanks for your lovely comment. Ah, the beach sounds good! Best, Anita
Brilliant idea! Very calming. – Sharon
love it! such richness of subtle hue, when mixed from the classic pigments like that.
Thank you, Patrise. Yes, these hues are lovely in subtle mixtures. Thanks for stopping by.
Thank you very much!
