Price Lake II
Parkway Series #173 12 x 16 oil Sold
The horizontal value patterns attracted my eye in this image of lake and mountains. Many times I squint my eyes to reduce details and see the big picture before I paint an image. I like the simplicity of value patterns and symmetry; the land masses are also large simplified shapes of green with definition at the edges and in the gradations of color within them.
