Evening Tide

oil on canvas

I adore the hills of the eastern Gorge. It's a challenge to portray their immensity in a painting, since there aren't pine trees, etc., to give them scale. The day was overcast, with just enough sun coming through to turn the hillsides pink, and with the shaded foreground, it gives an idea of their grandeur.

I like the sense of light on those far hills. Good job!

agree with Todd--that "glow" in the distance is just right--great job
