Colours of Dusk by © Linda Callaghan

Currently unavailable for purchase

I am in the process of painting another 3 Sisters Painting that I will put into some exhibitions this year, but taking a break from it I decided to pick up my pastels. I have not used them for some time and still feeling my way around them..with paper and brands. I chose cool colours for my Dusk pastel painting instead of the usual warm ones.

Colours of Dusk

Dusk creeps slowly across the sky
Shadows fall to a lone bird’s cry
Warm colours are replaced with cool
Day sneaks away as night comes to rule.

    I could see this up in a jumbo timber frame, 6ft across bedroom wall, it’s really peaceful, great job Linda, beautiful work.

  • yes me too :) ..for some reason it did not load big enough for larger prints etc. I must look at why…as it is just slightly smaller than A4..? …glad you like it Mr T have a nice weekend!
