Last Light

This painting is based on another of our photos from our trip to the gulf coast this summer. The star of this painting is the sky as the last rays of sun hit the water as night decends.  Please enjoy this and feel free to comment.   Thanks everone for viewing.

California Dreaming

Boy it seems forever since I've added a painting to this blog.  I do apologize and plan to keep this as current as I can from now on.   Here is a painting I did for the online workshop I have been taking.  The workshop is in the The Complete Artist and run by Richard Robinson.  For October we have been doing sunrises and sunsets in harmonious colors.   I chose Yellow Orange/Blue Violet for my colors in here with a just a touch of Cad yellow light.  Yellow Orange was made by using Yellow Ocre and white with the Blue violet added in to make it darker.  For the Blue Violet I used Ultra Bl, Cad red light and Al Crim with just a touch of Yellow Ocre to gray it down.   Please enjoy and feel free to comment.
