Sycamores and Sand

February 13th, 2008

Sycamores and Sand – 5 x 7 acrylic on canvas on board
Click for actual size painting

Colors are strongest at sunset and dawn. In this miniature painting of a winter sunrise, the dawn touches wildflowers and clinging sycamore leaves and makes them shimmer. The location is near Palm Springs in one of the canyons where water and plant life are abundant.

  1. Your colors are very bright and clear. I love the rocks and how the light shines on them.

  2. As always, nice aspects to what you’ve done.
    Including the combination of color temperatures.
    But the color harmony is, perhaps, best, particularly strong.
    Also, I like the Fall colors, a bit of an intensity tightrope.

  3. Thanks Bill, the reference is in fact from January a year ago, so pretty much the same time of year – the last bits of leaves hanging on the sycamores, while winter rains are greening up the brush. I’m going to do some more like these with different subject matter, just for fun.

  4. I really enjoy how you have captured the light in this one. Very nice.
