skies

16x 5.5 pastel and watercolor on Uart

Still working with the long vertical, but this time I tried a different ratio. It's almost a one to three, almost. I am playing with the colors that make a deep ceiling of space, which is more challenging when the color is hazy and not as pronounced. I constantly keep in mind the concept of harmonious colors at expense to the "real" colors.

Love the broken colour sky in this one....and your smile and the photo of you in action in your last post is just wonderful! You are always such an inspiration to me, Loriann....

hi Maggie!
Thank you for your comment and your words of kindness. I love playing with broken color in the skies as helps with the feel of luminosity. I hope all is well with you. I haven't spent much time on blog or visiting blogs. Trying to simply marshal all my energy to simply paint since my life is so hectic. As soon as all quiets down I will be round to visit. Take care, loriann
