Shimmering Lights


"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!


  1. Vikki this is lovely.Love the warm colors of the sky.Beautifully done!

  2. You are the master at capturing luminosity! Wow! Your paintings have such a glow of warmth and richness. Beautiful work!

  3. Thank you all for your kind words--I'm going to do some more explorations using this technique.
