|Cool Down - 6x6 - Landscape - Oil on Canvas Panel|
This was a preliminary color study for a slightly larger painting. I ended up making most of these colors up, the original scene was darker and had more of a mysterious aura to it. I ended up going with that mood with the later painting, but I still like how I made this one look like a sunny, crisp winter day. Here in WA it seems like our winter is just now beginning to lift (thanks, el niño), so it seemed appropriate!
