I love this. Those deep, bright blues against the pale earthy neutrals - a Casey signature!

I know I've said this before, but I really admire your ability to toss out local color in your work and go with these scintillating palette combinations.

Donna T said...

Hi Casey - gorgeous painting!

SamArtDog said...

Have I seen this before, or is it just so right that it simply must exist? Like the sun.

Celeste Bergin said...

the contrast is so exciting!

Jeanette said...

Beautiful blues and creams. Its a restful piece. Your choice of palette always leaves me inspired.

Katherine van Schoonhoven said...

I am always fascinated by the glowing violet of distant hills at certain times of day. You've captured that beautifully with this painting! It makes me want to look and look.

Casey Klahn said...

Thank you, Sonya, Donna, Sam, Celeste, Jeanette and Katherine.

Stan Kurth said...

Awesome!

Lisa Le Quelenec said...

Gorgeous colours and a very exciting composition. Love it!

Robin said...

Beautiful! I need to ask (so I can learn) what color paper did you use? a putty color? purple and yellow together are one of my favorite combinations of all time.

Casey Klahn said...

Robin, Lisa and Stan - my deepest thanks.

Robin, the paper is a brown Sennie La Carte. It is visible in the upper left.

I can read these definitions in every dictionary, but I still can't understand how to do this...
See this blog, I think you'll like it: Drawings Paintings Prints, this person shows the stages of the painting but I still don't know how to use it so I ca use it at mine...
Will come back for sure.

Hi, Baba. I enjoyed looking at Catherine's blog. Will you start a blog, too?

Thanks for reading.
