Late Afternoon - SOLD
5" x 7" oil on panel
"All afternoon in the deck chair, I try to describe to my notebook the colors of the water and sky. How to translate sunlight into words?"Dusk and dawn are the artist's most prized times of day because light is beautiful then. The sun is low in the sky, casting long shadows and tinging the landscape with amber light. Those moments just prior to dawn or before dark when light is barely there adds more mystery. Shapes are indistinct and colours muted.

Watching the light and choosing the right moment to paint or capture the light with a camera opens up a world of beauty.
