Violet and succulents - Day 22

oil on linen on panel

THis was the first painting I did on location yesterday.   I was drawn to the color combination of the warm violet in the background and the cool succulents in the foreground...a little opposite of how things work with atmospheric perspective most of the time so it provided a nice challenge.  I still feel like I need to do something with the warm pillar moving into the background, but looking at it now I do like the tree.  How it reads with all the color and reflective light.   I always learn something new.

Happy Painting!
