Iowa Hills

"Iowa Hills"
6" x 12"
Oil on wrapped canvas 
The Iowa countryside outside my car window undulated like green scarves fringed with gold on a windy day.  

Today was a scheduled plein air day, but the weather was more like October than the end of July, so I used one of my Iowa photos and pretended I was outdoors.  I also used a different Cobalt Blue and some Indian Yellow to make my green. I really like how dark the green got. I may be able to get my values closer to what I'm seeing with these two new colors.  I also found this cute canvas size at Blick yesterday. I will be buying more.
