Swan Valley Study #5

"Swan Valley Study #5", 8" x 10", Oil on Museum Board
This study was about pushing color. I did three of these and the other two are a little out there and I'm not sure what I think of them. But this one was simple in concept and an interesting experiment.

Purchase this unframed painting.
Contact me if you would like to purchase a plein air frame.


  1. This is just beautiful. I think the yellow in the back and the blue of the lake make all the difference. Very nice.

  2. I love to push colors. You carried this off really well, lovely!

  3. Beautiful, Kathryn. Great color!

  4. Thanks Katie, Elaine and Fritz for you comments--they are very appreciated!
