Moon Over The Chamberlain Ranch

" Moon Over The Chamberlain Ranch"
12" X 16" Oil on panel
There is a spot along Foxen Canyon that is up on a way looks towards the canyon andthe other has a great view of the rolling foothills of the Figueroa mountains. I never realised it but all of that property belongs to the Chamberlain ranch. These hills are used for cattle grazing and many times it is just the cattle and me up there. I did this painting at late evening showing the full moon rising up over the Figueroas.
A detail of the painting....
I was trying to keep these distant oaks soft looking and with various shapes. I also used them a bit to show the curve of the land out there.
