"West Texas Elevator" 12" x 16" oil/c

After creating a couple of paintings I
think were too colorful, I have gone
off the other end to see what would happen.
I photographed this elevator on a bright,
sunny afternoon last October. I just didn't
want this to be a bright and cheery
painting so I painted it as if a rain storm
had just passed through. I think it worked
out fairly well.

Really like the color and light in this. Would love to know what "too much color" means to you.
