Pewter, Purple n’ Orange by Cody Delong 16×20″ Oil
Cody Delong. Some mesmerizing paintings. Lovely work! He paints such a wide variety of landscapes – each one is just beautiful. His colors, and the underpainting peeking through in the still life above is just glorius. Also love the orange reflection in the pitcher!
Land of Few Fences by Cody Delong 24×36″ Oil
I have never actually seen the dessert, or this type of landscape. So seeing it in paintings is so interesting to me. I love the color of the earth, the mountains and that stunning sky. It’s fabulous how the sun hits, so beautifully…
Read a bit about Cody, from his website:
Each painting I do begins with an idea, something that’s inspired me. I try to distill this into my own underlying abstract design and interpretation of nature. The balance I’m searching for lies in creating a work that is technically proficient as well as ‘painterly’, with great color and sense of light and drama.
