Late Winter Kansas Landscape


Cold, sharp & scattered light through high clouds give the scene that bright but low sun winter brilliance.  It can be disorienting with a perspective flattening character.  The colors a muted:  burnt browns, low contrast raw siennas & yellows tinted with reddish browns.  Grasses are burnt a dull gray-white.  As severe as the weather the landscape has endured.  A lot of subtlety of muted colors among the stark trees & washes.
