Despite its title, this work is really anchored by the two trees and path in the center of the composition. The color palette is bold and includes some basic primary hues, which helps to create strong visual presence. Most of the brushwork is achieved with small to medium flat brushes, which helps to maintain some visual uniformity in the piece. If you're a fan of unbridled color, this is for you! The sides are painted brown, and it arrives wired and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Robert

Robert Hofherr avoids depicting a landscape exactly as he sees it or as the viewer might expect. Instead, he enjoys reimagining landscapes and painting his pieces indoors at a fairly rapid pace. The works of French Fauve artists Maurice de Vlaminck and André Derain initially got him interested in painting, and also influenced his decision to not use grey in his works. During his free time he enjoys spending time with his kids, walking his dogs and taking road trips to out-of-way places in the mid-Atlantic region. He currently lives in Maryland.
