Landscape: Riddle Farm Road Alicia C

This is an oil painting that someone commissioned I make of my backyard area 5 years ago or so, a wonderful place. It was just a country road, but so much more.

The painting is no longer with me but I enjoy this photo, as well as all the other photos of that marvelous place.

I now live like 25 minutes from this place, which in the mountains means practically next door.

The technique involved an underpainting and layers of glazed paint, a technique I enjoyed a lot in art school or whatnot. It took me from September thru December, but not working nonstop.

this is my painting with the actual place in the background

this is a photo with high saturation in Photoshop
