Mount Diablo Summer Evening

Diablo Summer Evening 14 X14
Painted from the westside of Danville at the top of Love Lane. The light is fun to play with at this time of day, with lots of opportunities to push the darks and emphasize and simplify the lovely irregular shapes . Diablo always reminds me of calligraphy and supplies plenty of light/dark contrast and movement. I used a lot of alizarin crimson and pthalo blue on the dark green areas.

My favorite painting. Robin captured the spirit of the mountain's heart.
