Dancing Lights ll- Imagined Woods Series, 10 X 7, Original Watercolor
The dark of twilight is made brighter and more hopeful with the twinkle of fireflies.
Imagined Woods Series - during quarantine, I became obsessed with what I am calling the Imagined Woods series. Some were dark and foreboding, some were light and hopeful, others feel in between. I explored sizes, shapes, processes and color schemes. Most have multiple layers, with the distant trees hinted at with pale color that were applied wet into wet. Since we were quarantined in the winter and spring the branches are bare but waiting for new life. Even the dark and mysterious ones hint at a distant light.
This painting contains Amethyst Genuine from the Primatek collection by Daniel Smith. This specialty pigment is actually made from grinding the semi precious stones. It is great to mix with other pigments I in this case Indigo) and I love how it catches the light with hints of natural sparkle. You will see its effect in the dark tree trunks. Using this paint adds a magic that can't be duplicated – not even if you try.
This is an original watercolor painting. Professional Watercolor pigments were used on Arches 140 lb paper.
No reproductions are permitted.
I am happy to produce commissions that will allow you to choose colors, size, etc.
