|'As the Sun Goes Down'|
The King Valley Region is beautiful any time of year but the best time must be autumn. As the sun was disappearing behind the distant mountains a fairly ordinary scene jumped out at me. The warm colours were muted as this little corner of the world was thrown into shadow and the scene came alive in my mind. The contrast between the dense foliage and the bare deciduous trees was very exciting to me. This scene I could paint again and again changing the colour palette.
