Night Scapes are a specialty of mine. This moon was amazingly bright and created both color and the dark so well; had to paint it. Shine On beautiful moon.
Anywhere we look we can find abstract patterns, and this is particularly found in leaf forms. Selecting a color scheme, not necessarily in nature’s colors, gives one the freedom of partial abstraction and strong contrast of values. This subject can fit into any venue.
My host in New Mexico once allowed me to see his garage and storage/work room where I found an abundance of fascinating objects for still life. He must have known their worth because he wouldn’t part with any, but did let me borrow for a few hours. For this painting, I selected a color scheme and kept it working throughout the painting. It earned me a credit for my SWS Signature membership many years ago.
