Confetti Landscape II

Oil on Linen

I started this painting with the idea of Southwest colors and almost every color has parts of Vasari Adobe Hue. This knocked the chroma down and it was a matter of creating puzzle like shapes with contrasting hues. There was no attempt at atmospheric perspective as I didn't want the background to get too chalky. The other challenge was the design and breakup of spaces directing the eye to the horizon.
