Marsh on a Cloudy Day, 5x7" - Sold


Marsh On A Cloudy Day, pastel on board by Adriana Meiss
 The colorful branches of the willows in winter and the pale yellow grasses surrounding a mall parking lot were the inspiration for this painting. I imagined there must have been some open water before the mall was build...  I'm not sure the water reads as such; maybe a few ripples is all it needs. In any case, I tried to make sure its color did not compete with that of the sky.

That is the most beautiful mall parking lot I've ever seen! Really, I've been wondering if anyone could paint those willows in the winter and make them look natural. You totally did it! The quiet mood of this painting is so wonderful, Adriana!

Hilda and Donna, Thank you for your comments. They really inspire when one has doubts. I did some minor changes in the water and in my signature which stands out too much as it is. I would like to do this scene in a larger format and see what other values of grays and blues I can use in the background. Thanks again!
