Summer Afternoon Drive


In the incredibly beautiful foothills of the Rocky Mountains along a windy road in mid summer a couple of years ago, I pulled over and sketched this lush green landscape. The emerald and multiple shades of green captured my eye, with the distant grey blue mountains. I’ve driven this Southern Alberta road west of Nanton many times, and often thought I need to stop and capture this peaceful scene. I didn’t finish the painting on location, as it was simply way to windy. I did a small 6 X 12 of this rolling foothills painting and then decided to make it much larger in oil and cold wax on cradled canvas.
