Ray of Light on the Rio.

Ray of Light on the Rio   SOLD

6x8in oil on canvas board   100.

Another view from the Mesilla Valley; also, another one painted when the late afternoon sun was setting. This time I am facing the north and the sun is catching our barren hills with a beautiful glow. I always wait for the ray of light to fall on the Rio Grande as it cuts between the hills. I have painted this place quite often and during the early winter is the only time this light happens.

Artists Info:
I had a limited palette of cad yellow light, cad orange, alizarin permanent, Ultramarine and titanium white, and used both painting knife and brush on this painting.
