Whiskey Run

23 Dec

The road, Whiskey Run, ends on this Oregon beach that is approved for vehicles. Mud tracks curved through the newly washed-in logs, some of which had to be cut to make way for the cars. Freshly sawn logs created some nice orange color to contrast with the browns and blues of the beach.

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.
