Sunset in Mauve, 8x6" - Sold

Sunset in Mauve, pastel on paper by Adriana Meiss
     At the end of April the guild I'm in (OAG) will have it's annual spring sale. In my effort to avoid framing like crazy at the last minute, I have been working steadily for the last month, mostly producing small paintings. Some are already framed after having passed the test of seating on a shelf for weeks without any little thing screaming to have it fixed.
    The reference photo for this painting was an irrigation channel from a nearby town, but by changing the vegetation I turned it into a scene that could have been from the Adirondacks.

I love the light on the water Adriana. This is a beautiful scene - you wouldn't know it was originally based on a water channel!
Regards,
Elaine

Thank you Elaine! Lately I have been using my photo references to a minimum. Most of the color is from experimenting.
