With 2011 drawing to a close, I'm finishing with a painting from the Reserves Park series. This is Evening– Reserves Park 7, 16x20, oil on canvas and the fourth in the series painted this year. Perhaps earlier in the evening than others in this series, this on concentrates on long cast shadows and the warming effects of the setting sun. Warm greens, oranges and golds against the warming horizon line. Even the tree branches and trunks are picking up the warmer tones as the sun goes down.
