Lavender Evening, February 2, 2010

Lavender Evening

I’m posting one of my early works (1988), where I experimented with light prismacolor highlighting dark tree branches.  I was fascinated one winter evening as the sky turned lavender, the breezes stirred, and the air was filled with debris.  So I tried some splatter technique to fill the sky and atmosphere with that sensation.  I guess I can chalk this up to one of my early “mood” watercolor sketches, but the experiments would pay off in later works.

    This is really lovely, love the colours in it. Kind of ‘mystic’.

    Nicely done. The colous suite the mood really well. I especially like the hidden moon behind those banches

    Thanks, both of you. This was the first watercolor sketch to get me really excited over the possibilities of watercolor and colored pencil combined. Before that, I had kept those media strictly separate.

    I’ve never tried the two together, but certainly looks well worth the try.
