more ground fog

9x12 pastel on watercolor
This is the painting from my demo last week. The ground fog concept is obsessing me. Skies need unity. For me that means a joining of color. When the fog touches the land it works like a veil of color. In this one the blues drift into the land. Still the top half of the sky needs to relate its colors to the land. Deep burnt sienna of the foreground land sings to the light melon of the upper sky. Does that make sense?
On another note, I have received a few emails about the workshop. In each I have been asked, "where is it?" I laugh at myself for omitting such important information and apologize to you. The workshop is here in the DC area. We will meet at my studio on Friday night and work in the field- the Potomac River and surrounding lakes- on Saturday and Sunday. If it rains, we have studio space in DC. Here is the info. Email me if you have questions. Hope you can come!

Skies need unity.
When the fog touches the land
It works like a veil of color.
Blues drift into the land.
Deep burnt sienna sings
To the light melon of the upper sky.

Did you know you wrote a poem? I saw it immediately.

Pink Melon Fluff and More Ground Fog work very well for me!
I am trying to write about unity, and your simply put description of color unity is a keeper. Or a steal-er, since that's what I will do to it - maybe I'd better send them over here to see @ unity in skies. That's what I'll do! That way I give you the attribution and they can see how it's done!

Many thanks.
