Valley Girls – Landscape oil painting – Cows on ranch in Central California

April 13th, 2009

Valley Girls
8 x 10
oil on canvas on birch panel

SOLD

This painting is the result of a test of a new panel I’m working on – a very fine canvas, primed for oil painting and then attached to a birch panel with acid-free archival glue. I didn’t have time to get out today so I used some reference sketches and photos to compose this peaceful scene of a valley in central California.

Although I like the “spring” of stretched canvas, these panels are very light, portable and good for plein air studies.

As I painted this, it started to have sort of a folk art feeling, so rather than fighting it, I just went with it and had fun with the process.
