About this artwork
This painting was inspired by the coastal palette of the Mendocino region in California, shares artist Lisa Elley. The soothing cool hues present the scene with harmonious lines that connect the sky, the mountains, and the ocean. Lisa gives the impression of standing on top of a hill covered with delicate wildflowers to appreciate the expansive view. Painted entirely with a palette knife, Lisa used her deep impasto technique resulting in thick textures and captivating movement.
