about 7x7 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper

The challenges were the same. First challenge:greens. Second challenge, show the light through the reflection in the water. Can you feel the light?

I totally can!

Lovely turquoises and overall stillness.

Janelle Goodwin said...

Me too! There is a lot of sky of your beautiful, still reflection.

The light of the sky reflected in the water really does work nicely here, Loriann. It feels to me like the brooding stillness of a hazy morning.

Donna T said...

I think I can feel the light more than if the sky was showing! Maybe the sky competes with the light on the water or maybe we just naturally gravitate toward the sky? Whatever. This painting is so serene and peaceful and it's hard to look away.

Thanks Jala and Janelle!

Brian, Brooding stillness of a hazy morning...I like that. Sounds like a name for another painting...may I?

You are probably right. There might be competition and there can only be one diva who sings the arias. Let it be the water. Thanks for inspiring this new series, your questions definitely were the springboard for this new path.:-)
