               Twilight   Pastel | 4x6

Twilight is that perfect time in the evening when the sun has just disappeared below the horizon line and the sky puts on her most brilliant color show.  Looking across the meadow, the trees and forest were dark shades with no discernible forms.  

Painting notes: Working with a limited number of strokes to make this small painting of a brief moment in time. The substrate is a Canson Touch but I have no idea what original color it was. Often, when I'm not happy with a painting, I will use the pipe insulation foam to rub it all in and then spritz it with ISO to make a whole new surface. I'm glad this filled in some of the nubby surface, giving me the dark brown color I wanted to paint on but without too many pits.
