This is the final painting in my series called VACATION!
I love watching the leaves of palm trees sway in the wind… it’s so soothing to me. And since I don’t live in a place that has these kinds of large palm trees, I completely associate them with being on vacation.
Oh, how I wish I was there, in this painting!! Great job!
Me too!! Hey, I like your name. 🙂 — Marie Scott
I just love your painting style. You include so many colors when you paint your shadows. It gives such a depth to them and makes the painting come alive. How do you choose which colors to include?
Thanks, Carla! I usually put lots of blues and browns in the shadows. I don’t even own a tube of black paint because I don’t like how cold it makes the painting feel. I get my darks by mixing Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna. Then I’ll just throw in whatever color is on my palette from other areas of the painting. That helps tie it all together. Hope this helps!
