Yellow Mountain

The yellow gold of evening light in autumn changes the colors of those things that it touches as well as the shadows. I painted this valley last October plein air,  mid-day and was discouraged when the interesting clouds turned to rain and dulled the colors of the scene.  I repainted it recently changing the sky to yellow, suggesting higher mountains and let that set the tone for adjustments to the rest of the painting.

This view of Crescent City’s lighthouse is from the north at the lookout at Brother Jonathan Park.  The mountains and strips of fog seem to surround Battery Point Island in a crescent, protecting the lighthouse as the ocean waves batter the rocks.
