Abstract Landscape Painting - Oil on Panel

Abstract Landscape - Untitled
6x8" Framed

This is a little oil painting I did awhile back during a break in commissions.  I wanted to play with my oils using a very limited palette and no reference photo so that I could focus more on the essence of a landscape rather than an actual depiction of a landscape from a reference. As soon as I have a reference photo in front of me I want to capture every detail, which is fine, just not what I wanted to do on this painting :)

I was a great way to kind of cleanse my head between commissions and I am really happy with the end result. The colors are much richer in real life so I will try to photograph outside tomorrow as it is supposed to be sunny still, yay.  I had a great title picked out when I was painting this but for the life of me I can't remember what is was.
