"Lupine in the Valley" - Oil - 12" x 16" - $260
"Lupine loves the gravel bars in riverbeds or on mine tailings nearby. This distinct array filled one side of the riverbed while a small community was nestled in the distance. The site is south of Hayfork, California." --- SFG
In this painting, I used the dark trees in the foreground to help create a sense of distance, leaving lighter tones for the middle ground and distance. The larger tree on the left balances the shape of the lupine mass as well. Spring colors were used with the spring-blooming lupine.
