Hi guys. Well the framings and shows are done and it is time to get back to creating new and wonderful worlds.....

Well - new and interesting? Who knows? I have just "completed" this piece. Not sure which direction I will go in next - I do so love the "moody" landscapes.......

:)

Joel, I really like the way you have color in the foreground, even though the painting is a type of silhouette against the sky. I sometimes find these types of paintings too "dead," but you have handled the foreground beautifully! In fact, the painting is rather wonderful.:)

I agree with sylvia, Joel

brilliant use of foreground color to tie it up in a BOW


Nice piece,,,maybe your best so far!

I was expecting a manganese blue (!) beach :D

Your painting is indeed very moody and super-good !

Thanks everyone! I was unsure about this painting as I am trying to incorporate more lively whites these days!

The painting is 15x22inches. Arches Aquarelle 300gsm rough. Art Spectrum professional quality paints.

The key feature of this painting is the use of Manganese Blue highlights to balance out the color wheel in the foreground! Hence the name! That is why (IMVHO) it pleases the brain.
