“The sounds of sea breezes, waves coming ashore and seagulls squawking overhead slowly fade away; I look to the horizon and wait for the brilliance of a setting sun. There is magic in this hour ~ “ by Mary
Magic Hour, a charcoal drawing (8×10) was drawn on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper using a mixture of soft and hard charcoal. In 2015 I painted this scene in oil pastels (you can see the painting in the gallery above) and recently thought it may respond well to charcoal. I was looking to capture the contrast of dark and light that shows itself during the early evening, when the sun sets and colorful light rays bounce off the water. It is a special moment to watch unfold ~
