California Landscape Painting – Sierra Foothills Oil Painting

Sierra Foothills
8 x 10
oil on board

This scene is from the foothills of the Sierra, approaching Yosemite from the western side. Oak covered hills and golden grasses make for a limited palette scene.

Most of this was painted with ultramarine and prussian blue, yellow ochre, and small touches of alizarin to create the violets and warm accents. I’m using this study as a way to experiment with some color choices for larger Sierra foothills paintings yet to come.

    I love the Sierras, even though I’ve only seen them from afar. But, one day I’m going to hike them. Gosh, this is so beautiful!

    This is really lovely. I like your palette and the little touches of red. Hope you have a great New Year.
