    This is my third attempt at a nocturne painting. This is a lot of BLUE, but I may , next time , tone down to warmer or more greyed hues. it is a transition that I have to take , until I believe or trick myself into believing I have covered at least SOME ways of painting DUSK or darkness. There are many who have done or are doing this better than I ... but I feel compelled to give it my best shot.

    What better area to paint than one of my favorite spots ... the MARSH.

    Since I am known for my historical genre  ... I stay true.

    Great Night Scene

    I love this night scene depicting Native Indians gliding in stealth across this slow moving waterway in their bark canoe. The angles of the bank and water reeds create a wonderful sense of depth. The composition is excellent, leading to a sense of a story by the placement of elements; the colors -- vibrate with interest from the range of deep blues to the red tinges of color on the canoe.

    This really speaks to me. Well done!

    Just an amazing work of art.

    Amazing watercolor.

    Beautiful, can feel the quiet and almost a cricket.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.
