Summer Heat is a mixed media production on Canson Me-Teintes textured pastel/mixed media paper…. being December in Australia we are experiencing some very warm weather, today the beach was at it’s most gorgeous, this painting is inspired by the sultry salty warm days by the beach we love at this time of year, and the beautiful hues of the water when it’s still like a milk pond as it was this morning :)

In the background is an icecream van set up by the beach, which has caught the little one’s eye and she’s waving to the vendor.

I’ve used pastels and charcoal, both white and black varieties, as well as pencil and black Faber Castelle markers

The original work is available unframed for $220, but it is not so bright and in softer hues… this piece has been enhanced a bit in photoshop

    Your sense of colour is truly marvellous. Only yesterday I was contemplating the fact that whilst red is a dominant colour, it can be used successfully in the background if it is sufficiently subdued and here you are, proving that is true.

  • thx so much Dave, i don’t plan colour much at all…just begin somewhere, and work my way through the painting….i just go by intuition and what ‘feels’ right at the time, but i’m so happy that i’ve used the red successfully in the background…lol….i feel very pleased about it indeed!! :)
