“Eucalyptus at Eventide (aft Granville Redmond)”, 11×14 oil on canvas board, by Rog Lyngaas, 21jul09, XD palette.

Once again my mentor surprised me with a challenge. In this interpretation, once again the composition was altered to meet my taste. Once I finished this I told Fred that I hope this work’s towards greater world peace.  Regardless, I hope you enjoy it.

Cool blue = french ultramarine (green shade)
Earth blue = prussian blue
Warm blue = Viridian
Earth yellow = raw umber (graham)
Cool yellow = cadmium barium yellow light
Warm yellow = cad yellow med. hue (grumbacher – student grade)
Earth red = burnt sienna
Warm red = cadmium barium red — vermillion hue
Cool red = alizarin crimson

  1. I love the light, Rog, in the upper right hand corner. The yellows and greens on the foreground hill do a good job of creating depth with those warm and dark trees behind it. Nice painting. Looks old world.

    • Thank-you for the compliments. It may not look like it, but I spent an awfully long time to do the sky. The initial block in of this painting uses an extra layer of earth pigments.

  2. I just wanted to let you know about a new forum for artists as well as musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers, http://www.PutItOn.com.
