Wetland Rain

 Wetland Rain
5" x 7"  Oil on canvas panel
 
Available for purchase in my Etsy shop

Last weekend I was driving home across a barren wetland and the rain was following as a dark band across the sky.  As I went further east, I could see a band of turquoise sky sandwiched between the dark and pale clouds.  The sun was highlighting the hills in their fall colour and little glimpses of shining water in the wetlands caught my eye.


A combination of memory and the ability to walk just down the road from my house and see my own wetland, gave birth to this oil painting.

Thanks so much Suz. I loved the light in the sky and land as I drove and wished I could have stopped to capture it properly, but concentrated instead on memorizing as much as I could in colours and shapes.

I love a limited palette too, it really stops me from pulling out 20 different tubes to create something! :)

Geraldo, thank you so much.
