Last week I was on the Island of Ocracoke, off the coast of North Carolina. It has a small harbor they call Silver Lake. This small body of water has always obsessed me but this time I arrived in Ocracoke with the simple idea that I would color study it over and over.
I mostly used memory although some have been started by some plain air, like this one. Once I could separate and begin to work the following day I was free from what i saw and eager to simply play with color.

I discovered your blog a few days ago and have immersed myself in your fascinating and informative posts ever since...my first comment somehow disappeared ....let's hope this is more successful!

Hello, Lorian!
Beautiful colors, and better at the end.
Your work encourages me to change to change the colors of my landscapes without complexes, and more and more often.

Hi Leslie and Ricardo,

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and comment. I'm sorry it's so hard to comment. One time a porn site hooked onto my blog and was placing some rather unsavory comments. Therefore I had to add comment verification. Sorry ...it's a pain to get through and you have to wait for your comment to be oked by me before it appears. Since I check about once a week there is always a delay.
As for colors and changing.... just keep in mind when painting you are making a painting not taking an accurate inventory.You can do whatever you want to make it beautiful and compelling. Let the fun and wonder begin! Paint on! - Loriann
