An almost invisible line of cadmium orange separating the dark green treeline from the lavender sky creates the depth of atmosphere in this painting. Details matter; pay attention. Original fine oil landscape by American abstract realist Jo Brown, depicting the dusk view from the salt makers's cabin at Duck Creek, Wellfleet, Cape Cod, MA, USA.
Quick brush strokes in shades of lavender, Portland gray, sap green, and olive green render the cloudy sunset over still water and a line small cabins amongst the trees. Painted en plein air, alla prima, September 18, 2012. Blue Heron Gallery, Wellfleet, MA.
