SkyLights – 9″x12″ oil on extra-deep canvas
by Cheryl Peddie
Sunset over Nose Hill Park, Calgary AB. I winged it a little with the foreground in this one. In my reference, the grasses were quite high. As a result there was unfortunately a lot of shadow. Shadow’s not always a bad thing, especially given that the tips of the grass were shining a lovely muted gold. However I found that my composition required less ground and more sky . . . so the grass got ‘mowed’.
