Acrylic on Canvas, 9"X 9"
I was lucky to spot this beautiful farm in Chiang Mai province of Northern Thailand. After travelling virtually for hours in Thailand via google street view, this scene caught my eye. It looked complicated to paint the whole scenery, but I liked a bunch of things here... the background slopes overlapped in different hues of green, the little houses dotting here and there, the ploughed farm, and of course, the yellow floral foreground! I wanted to capture them all on my canvas. I made small changes by popping up the houses a bit and color them red, and brightened up the greenery to contrast the dark areas. Here is the reference scene from google. This would be my submission for the July-Virtual Paintout challenge.
