9x12 pastel on Uart paper
The 95 plus humid heat has made a beautiful HAZY landscape. This morning's light was pregnant with gold and dominated the whole scene. Today my friend Shirley asked me to define dominant color and dominant light color/light key. Truth is, for me they work together. The dominant color is the thread, the color that ties it all together. The color of the light is the color that is made by the light bouncing off of things, water, trees, stones...it's not local color. It's things suffused with light so that its no longer important what they are, except absorbers or reflectors of light. That's simply my understanding...anyone else?
