Heading Home 8"x16" $225

I really struggled with this one.  I wanted to create a twilight feel that really wasn't in the photo I used.  All the colors had to be greyed down a bit and highlights had to reflect that pink glow from a dieing sunlight.  Then I had a horrible time with the foreground.  Trees, animals and houses at least have a specific shape to interpret, but that expanse of ground is bascically flat or maybe rolling so its the artist's colors that create an interest.  I painted and wiped off at least 3 times.  So this is the best I can do for now!
