Isn’t it amazing how we find inspiration from disparate places?
This painting was based on a twilight photograph from one on my low country trips. Aside from a faint pink in the sky, there was very little color. The tree and grasses were just dark silhouettes. I thought it could be used for a painting, but I needed a color scheme.
The woman in front of me in church yesterday had on a beautiful jacket with horizontal stripes of red, pink, peach, and light yellow with touches of greenish taupe and lavender. I was so fascinated, I hardly heard the sermon, and couldn’t wait to get home and start the painting. In the process of completing the painting, I added a bit more green and blue, but the warm colors created the sunset glow I was seeking.
