Garden Glow - Original Gouache Painting
This is a 9"x12" original gouache painting on Arches coldpress paper.
The sun was setting fast, and I needed to work as quickly as possible to lay down the colors for this scene. The dahlias in Heather Farm Park were just glowing, and so many beautiful colors were bouncing around in the light. The shade from a tree disrupted the piece, but I took it home and tried to capture the same feel and energy in the studio.
