|pastel on watercolor, 10x10|
I went to the lake just to observe, not to paint. Just look. But I can never resist...at least I just observed the lake. This small field was at my back. heh.
One note...my pastel box has a row of purples and a row of violet like grays. Every landscape has them in one way or another. I can't keep away from them. Side bar note: I painted both my bedroom, living room and bathroom in different shades of purple and gray purple. Purple keeps appearing in my clothes.
I close with another quote from Wolf Kahn-
“For the artist, purple has special qualities. The small- est variation in density of tone is significant. Purple can be made to appear airy or heavy. It can describe a wide range of psychological meanings, from celebratory to tragic.”
