Heidi in Rice Field

This is for Virtual Paintout July 2012, Thailand. It's oil on 10x14 canvas panel.

There are lots of nice scenes to paint in Thailand. The first one I've chosen is a rice field scene just outside of Chiang Mai, which is basically a combination of this scene (ref) and this one (ref).  I like the shadow from the tall trees plus the layers of rice fields. I also wanted to use the purple / yellow green color combination. 

I painted this painting while staying with my relative in the San Francisco area. I decided to paint in my little four year old niece Heidi walking down in the path. Everyone got a nice kick out of it.
