Call of the Wild

“Call of the Wild”, 14 x 18, Oil#JackLondonStatePark#JackLondonCottage

We painted plein air at the Jack London State Park in Sonoma County last Saturday. This is the cottage on his estate and the place he passed away at the age of 40 in 1916. Its a beautiful park and we are intending to paint again there as there are many beautiful views there. My palette for this painting is cobalt blue, cadmium red light, cadmium yellow light and titanium white. I just loved the cottage and the huge wild tree next to it. I feel I captured the spirit of Jack London and his place.
