If you like lots of green trees then
this is not the view for you.
Personally, I find I love
the long view...
where trees do not block the view.

Artist Note.
I used an angle
brush to form my basic shapes
of color
moving into palette knife work
to add texture for an interesting


  1. Love the long view. My favorite part.......the mountains. They are so fluid and graceful. Fun painting, Julie.

  2. Yes i love the blues and the cutting in of the brush angles really sculpt out the view.

  3. Love this view Julie, the texture and composition look great!

  4. Bonjour chère amie,

    Tout comme vous j'adore les arbres mais il ne faut qu'ils créent une barrière à la vue.
    J'aime la profondeur que vous avez magnifiquement rendu dans cette dernière oeuvre. Elle emporte votre regard au loin...

    Gros bisous ♡

  5. Wonderful landscape painting with nice colours and an amazing cloudy sky !!!
    Have a nice day Julie !!!

  6. Julie - what a lovely painting of a gorgeous view. Where I live we don't have such open places. So wonderful to visit you and see the beauty that is where you call home. Hope you are having a beautiful day. Hugs!

  7. Beautiful painting Julie! Gorgeous colors....

  8. I always kind of inhale sharply when I see clouds from New Mexico. They truly are unique to the area and so delightful. The distant mountains in this painting are gorgeous in color and texture!!

  9. Dessert isn't for me, but clouds are always an eye catcher. This is nice relaxing painting after all those Lilies.

  10. A very open landscape ...New Mexico I guess? Warm and gorgeous !

  11. Beautiful job on the extended view to the mountains!

  12. Oh so lovely, Julie! I enjoy the wide open spaces too and you've captured the feeling of the space.

  13. Your knife work is just beautiful, Julie! What a great painting!!

  14. I do enjoy that desert view. Wide open vistas like that are something to cherish.

    Beautiful colors and knife work as always:)

  15. A sky to get airborne into ... I love sky scenes in general, and this one in particular.

    Will try a palette-knife one day fat I've worked out that the paint goes on the hairy end of the brush, which is a start!

  16. Beautiful, perfect clouds and landscape!
