Island Breeze 9" x 12" oil
In my last post I talked a bit about how I create color from my imagination when the photo source doesn't suit me. This is another one of those. The scene is from Hawaii, where I shot several photos while we drove though a small town on a scenic drive. I remember seeing various lines of laundry and flapping towels which is what I wanted to paint, but didn't have the right photo source for it. I invented the laundry line for added color, but also to emphasize the idea of the breeze shown in the movement of the palm branches.
