Evening Light--Original Landscape Oil Painting

Yesterday evening after I got home from my walk in the park and finished my little painting of the old Walnut tree, I started looking through some photos I took last summer. Now I'm longing, really longing for those long summer evenings. All the lush green inspired me to create a little summer evening painting. It was a good challenge. Greens are always tricky, but I was happy with the results of the limited palette on this one. I started with an underpainting of Terra Rosa. After that, my palette wsas limited to Utramarine Blue, Sap Green, Cadmium Lemon Yellow, and Titanium White. This painting is 5x7 inches on a gessoed hardboard panel.
