California Hills


This was painted for the Following the Masters Challenge. I had such a wonderful time loosing myself in the process of trying to paint in the style of Vincent van Gogh. I was inspired by the Olive Trees in the Alpilles (pictured above my painting) but I used a reference photo of mine to loosely paint the hills by my house. Maybe I should go back and make the olive trees look more like oak trees?

Thanks everyone. I'll leave the olive trees alone and move on to the next painting challenge.
