Last week I talked about changing the colorway of a design to change the mood. In this second painting of trees along the Congaree River, I changed the colors from cool blues and greens to yellow and blue-purple. I darkened the shadows under the trees to increase the contrast and suggest the golden light of late afternoon.
When I incorporate familiar shapes with personal color choices, I’m inviting the viewer to see common things in a different light.
Banks of the Congaree #2 will be on display in my exhibition ABIDING TREES at Still Hopes Episcopal Retirement Community in West Columbia, SC, opening October 3rd. Click here for more details and a short video preview.
