PLATTELAND LANDSCAPE

This is a further country scene, in more subdued light, with a colour scheme that hopefully enhances the tranquillity of the subject.    The focal stripe of light in the middle-distance is juxtaposed against the ultra-dark staccato notes of the trees, and this interplay is repeated in the chiaroscuro of the sky.    Maybe an eventide skein of geese traversing the sky could add to the somnambulistic mood I have tried to create, even though Janny frowns upon such suspect additions.... I notice however that she seldom complains when the painting gets sold in her gallery.......
