Windbreak - New Original Oil Painting

Windbreak - 8 x 10
Oil on Canvas Panel
Copyright of Dena McMurdie 2009
I had a bit of a setback so I wasn't able to post anything yesterday, but this is my newest painting. It is a windbreak for a farmer's field. Autumn has always been my favorite time of year, which is why most of my paintings depict the fall. The design and composition are simple, the row of yellow trees progressing toward the background. I left the brushstrokes loose in this painting, keeping with my impressionistic style. I was careful to make sure that the trees faded in color and detail as they receded. The color scheme I chose was a simple one, blue and yellow. It kept everything nice and simple, just the way a painting should be.
