This painting is made from value spots of color that the eye connects and makes into a form that has substance and volume. I love to find those value spots and when I can build a painting using clean color it is a delight.
I thought this was a good image for the Fourth of July holiday. I would love to be at a beach but I live in the Mountains and beaches are hard to come by.
Peony quest is winding down . I think I may be on my last two. Thanks for hanging in there with me while I went on my annual "nutty nut" of a painting spree. It was great to read all the comments on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.
