Not a Whisper 5×7" oil #122

Inspired by some artists whose work I come to admire through this gallery site, including Mike Barr and Raul among others, I painted this one with a limited palette of greens, blue and white to try and get a more muted, subtle and quiet effect. I also painted it on canvas with a light neutral underpainting . Last night this looked really dull (in a good way) to me, but today it looks more vibrant…still dull next to my other recent landscapes, but more punchy than I thought.  It is fun to try new things.
