|Sunset at Blakeman's II|
The south facing side of the pavillion building is covered with colorful lobster buoys and in this scene, they are bathed in shadowy blue. Non-shadows had an orangey glow that spilled onto the roof peaks, sandy gravel and seagrasses. This blue/orange harmony is one of my favorites, especially for sunsets. I pumped up the color by using the more extreme tinting power of Prussian Blue, contrasted with a cadmium red and yellow blend.
This painting was created for the Duxbury Art Association 2017 Exhibition commemorating its 100th year. If selected, it would be part of a larger panel exhibit and/or auctioned to raise money for the DAA community programs. Alternately, it could be auctioned off or put
on display by DAA, so I will keep you posted!
