This is my newest painting that I did during my latest workshop. It was a demo but I absolutely love it for many reasons. First, the colors are some of my favorites. PURPLE being number one and then teal is right up there in popularity.
I also love the flow of this piece, it just came together so effortlessly. My workshop student wanted a pond painting which happens to be a favorite subject for me. I have always called myself a “water baby”; I grew up on a lake and was nurtured by the sound of waves.
The cool colors with the warm accents always pull a painting together. Those cattails and the rocks on the shoreline did the trick. Once the warm color came into the piece I knew exactly what was needed, so the final touch was the cattails. Those warm colors automatically direct your eye up to the cattails which is the focal point and title of the painting.
