Mountain at Dusk


This detail from a 16x24 was modeled after a coffee ad in back of a magazine, minus the product and its logo. The presentation is very simple, with no real detail. It relies on what the ad men intended: a soothing panorama of harmonizing colors. That also makes it fun to paint, as you can ad you own interpretation. Not seen is the reflecting pool I added at the bottom. which mirrors the peach sky. Try this source of inspiration for yourself, if only in practice. It might end up being a displayed work for many years, like this one, which has a calming influence in a bedroom.
