Oncoming Traffic

Oncoming Traffic / 6 x 6 in / oil on linen / $150


With this painting I infused all of the colors with Cerulean Blue for color harmony. I’ve been trying out different color combinations lately, and with this one I didn’t use my ultramarine blue at all… I usually use that when I mix black, but for this painting, I think cerulean blue made a fine ‘black.’

I tried to get the effect of the car lights shining, and of atmospheric perspective on the tree-covered hill / mountain in the background…
