Truman Park

"Truman Park"
8 x 10" oil on panel

"Truman Park" in virtual frame
I started this painting earlier in the week. As it sat where I could see it for most of the week I decided it had become too "precious", too fussy, too something.  So I attacked it again with the palette knife and "roughed" it up until it lost its preciousness.

It's painted in an impressionist manner with....well...impressions of the bushes, trees and sky.  The goal was to not be afraid of adding color and there are tons of color in this.  I especially like the turquoise in the shadows.
