possibly even more fleeting than the swiftly changing light of a sunset, there is something very quiet and peaceful about twilight. there is a pause right before darkness closes in; as if the daylight is reluctant to leave, but exits softly.
i added a book light to my paint box! a painter friend made this suggestion and it has opened a whole new world for night painting, a world i can actually see! very exciting. :) this is the view of the city from outside my apartment building. it's quite breathtaking, and i am sure that i will be painting it again soon.
i did this sketch a few nights ago before the heatwave came. there are now no clouds. it is fast approaching 102 degrees in NYC and the sky is blazing and empty. i am not sure if i dare to paint outside today, but we'll see...
i am a representational painter living in the new york area. i paint as as often as i can and love all things bright and beautiful! i also love laughing with friends, good music, drinking tea, scary movies, plein air painting, beautiful cathedrals, free wine, and candy corn. :) if you like what you see, please contact me. all of the works i have posted are available for sale.
