This painting is all about atmosphere and expanse. I really wanted to capture that open, amazing feeling you get when traveling through mountain ranges. There were several strategies involved: cool color tones (except for the golden grasses); loose brushwork in the mountains and detail in the mid-ground; a simple open foreground and blue sky. The small house was key to the viewer's perspective. 

This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Jill

Jill E Poyerd brings “peaceful, contemplative moments” to life on the canvas. She approaches the canvas with little preparation, instead allowing herself total freedom to create. Both her watercolor and oil painting works depict gorgeous scenes of nature with a style distinctly her own. Something as common as a tree appears soft and ethereal through Jill’s painterly style.
