My study of Deb Pero's painting

Study of Deb Pero's "Shade Seekers" SOLD
8" x 10" oil on gessoed masonite - nfs

After painting three Hereford cows plein air this past weekend at a farm, I decided to noodle around with the study I'd done of Deb Pero's pasture scene. I realized that my colors were too bold to achieve the atmosphere that comes from viewing things at a distance. So here's my 'noodled' version... I like it much better. Thanks, Deb, for such a sweet little piece to play with!

I remember the previous study vaguely, more warmer colors. I liked that one and love this one. I love how the yellow of the background peeps through the darkness of the trees.
