Second in my sunset series. This particular piece is all about capturing the quiet elegance of fading color as the sun slowly descends below the distance hills with its colorful beams of light streaming across the bay of still water.
If you read my earlier post, this painting was screaming at me – seriously! I had no intention of including clouds, there was to be a limited land mass and three boats, but no matter what direction I had in mind, this painting had a mind of its own. The lonely sky was begging for clouds, thus a color bank of clouds settled in across the sky, distant hills emerged, pathways gave way in the foreground land and the boats, well they never made it past the first layer of paint. As I said, the painting moved to its own beat.
A photograph of beautiful clouds bathed in the suns golden rays became my inspiration for a “new” beginning with this piece.
Hope you enjoy all the golden rays in your life ~ Mary
