Fields of Lavender and Gold

Title: Fields of Lavender and Gold
Size: 24 x 30
Medium: Oil on gallery wrapped canvas

See eBay auction tonight for purchase

This large original oil has a black, orange and blue underpainting. I used a palette knife on most of this one, dragging bits of mixed blues and purples in my lavender and blended golds and cadmium yellows in the fields. I spent some time on the sky with some textured brushwork in the clouds and hillside.
The vineyard bed and breakfast in Verona, Italy called Musella has beautifully inspiring countryside. A tapestry of color and folliage....olive groves, vineyards, lavender and forests. It was acres of beauty and this is one of my large studio paintings done from a smaller pochade.
