“En plein air” from my patio facing Las Campanas’ Black Mesa. 2 inch gallery wrapped linen canvas - with dark edges. Might look best in a floating frame. Very thick paint with palette knife and layers of dappled paint added.
Painted “en plein air” from my back patio while in Taos. I needed to touch up a bit by overpainting a small area in the lower left corner that did have a building with the tree’s shadow. I first did a photoshop of that original piece and decided I preferred th painting without the building so I extended the painting’s tree, sky and hill downward over the building.
Palette Knife. See karenhalbert.blogspot.com for a detailed analysis of this painting and others. This is part of a series that I am calling Canyon Colores. But note that the dimensions are close to a golden ratio. At the Marigold Arts Gallery.
