Shimmering Lights


SOLD

"Shimmering Lights" is a real departure from my normal genre in watercolor. It's a small piece, about 5 x 7", which I matted to about 10 x 12". It's a moody, atmospheric painting, depicting that special twilight time between sunset and night. I liked the calmness of the still water and the indication of what could be a shore town or lakeside community. I sometimes attempt this type of painting in oil where you can also capture that luminous quality, but I really enjoyed doing this small piece. Hope you like it too--someone did, as it recently sold!
