$50 © Pam Van Londen 2010, Valley Morning 7, oil on 8×8-inch archival canvas panel, unframed.
After playing with iridescent oil sticks last night at the First Thursday Art Walk, I had the urge to use them again.
This morning, I worked on canvas panels so the texture would easily pick up the oil. With the alizerin crimson underpainting and shimming deep colors, I was able to recreate a majestic atmosphere. And the sgraffito adds a bit of whimsey.

I started this painting a month ago at a plein air class. I’ve added to it several times but fell like it is done now. It is a relaxer…view to ease your eyes.

Driving towards the Cascade Mts in the morning when the sun is shining is spectacular!
Even if the mountains are a ways away, the lighting brightens up the grasses of the valley floor and cools off the far peaks.
This painting is the first in a series of memories of our drive from Corvallis to Lebanon this morning.
