rendevous: new time, different characteristics revealed

about 7x9 pastel and watercolor on wallis
Back to the field this time early evening. Brand new time, she appeared changed.  Different make-up. I chose to look towards the light. It was a challenge. Lots of shadow veiling the soft grass and slivers of golden light. Some blues where the grass was green, some violets. The pinks were much more violet, but at places the grasses mix:green and tawny pink. I'll return tomorrow.

Masterful color continues.
I like this one a lot, really tells the story.
Like the little strip of green running up the hill.
Genius!

I love how this suggests the early evening so well with such mood and rich color. And I agree with Double "D" abou that lovely yellow-green going up the hill... makes me want to follow.

Hi PB and thank you so much! I was so frustrated with this one. that early evening light is so fleeting. Thanks for your kind words!

Hi John and thank you!!!

Hi Brian! Thanks so much! That early evening glow is so challenging, so fleeting. It's almost like you don't paint it your feel it. Thanks for your kind words!

Your use of colour really has captured the mood of the early evening so beautifully. Lovely wee painting Loriann.
