On the Pulse of Morning 30 X 36
I came home from the galleries of Charleston, not to mention its gardens and beaches, with a head brimming with ideas. So, in an attempt not to lose my inspiration, I have three paintings in progress right now. This is the big one, and I'm also working on a 12 X 12 canvas and a 16 X 16 wood panel. The big one has most of my attention today because I've had these colors in my head for a couple of weeks, and I've just been thinking about composition. Sitting and watching the sun come up at Folly Beach gave me plenty of ideas, so I made a lot of progress on this one yesterday. I'm thinking about adding some golden lights and hints of gray-violet, as well as deepening the blues a bit. The Crazy Amigo challenge this week is "Summer Holliday," and at Inspiration Avenue, it's "Clouds," so I thought this would be a good venue for input. Any suggestions you care to make would be very welcome.
