Lots of color in an earth tone painting.
I have always enjoyed Andrew Wyeth, my favorite of all the Wyeth painters. Born in 1917 and died in 2009 at the age of 91, truly an American Artist.
I enjoyed his simplistic, almost sepia tone approach that added charm and unity to his paintings. To me his works was well thought out with an abstract quality, but he was classified as a Realist Painter.
Going for this charm I set out on this painting to simplify its colors to more earth tones. But what I quickly found out that even in an earth tone type painting, subtle color shifts are paramount.
