Crane Bathing In The Sunset by Kashmere1646


Available to buy on…

Acrylic on canvas board. The colorplay on the water and the bird’s pose had me mesmerized. I was inspired by prince’s song “Gold” so I had to make my crane gold and not of a reddish hue which it was originally! Before this painting I made a study in pastel which is strangely different from the acrylic version, much lighter and less dense somehow. He lifts his leg as if to strike a ballet pose, as if to begin painting something in the water.

I find my sustenance in life with art, when I paint a great calm enters my mind and all worries leave me, it is as if I enter a different world through art.

    beautiful really beautiful lovely lighting

  • My dear Lore, nobody seems to share your enthusiasm for this work, and you know, he is one of my favorites, love the colors of the ocean, maybe I didn’t render them well enough and that’s why no one else likes them, but this is how tastes differ.
    Love from Martha
