Red Meadow - Large 24x30 Minimalist Abstract Landscape

Red Meadow is my newest minimalist abstract horizon painting. I love the colors in this final piece. You'd be shocked if you'd seen this piece with the initial few layers. It was bright blue and purple. Then with the layers of various yellows the piece became green and dark chocolate brown. I almost kept that combination, but I felt like I wanted just a bit more depth to the horizon, so I continued to layer blues and yellows. Never used any green paint, but there's clearly an olive, khaki, hazel hue to the finished piece. The extra bits of red and cranberry really helped to highlight the sun's reflection in the lower portion of the 'meadow'.

This is a larger painting measuring 24x30 on thick 1.8 inch deep stretched canvas.

Currently sale priced until March 17th, 2009 in my etsy shop.

Thanks for taking a look!

Thanks Janyce! I'm so glad you like it. The frames are so much nicer in person than in the photograph. Wish I could show them off better!
