Sometimes in the evening when the clouds are low and the sun is setting, there is a shimmery look on the water that is both striking because of the shimmer yet soothing because of the soft colors. This painting captures that subtle radiance with very soft sky blue and powdery light green and tan colors with light radiance. When I was in Vail hiking a few years ago in the summer, I visited several high end art galleries. There were several artists who managed to capture light very well. It almost seemed like their paintings glowed. I wanted to capture that glow. For this painting, I used a lot of texture and painted in pastel colors. On top of the pastels, I've brushed the painting with an opalescent paint mixture to give it that shimmery look. I also photographed the painting outside with the overcast sun coming in from the side so that the texture and the slight shadows would be captured to provide the depth. Enjoy!
