( New Mexico Abstracts Series )

Original Mixed Media Painting: Acrylic, Gouache, and Watercolor on Winsor & Newton Watercolor Paper.     Image Size: 5 x 6 inches     Framed Size: 10.5 x 13.5 inches (museum mounted)

An abstract impression from colorful memories of a late fall sunset I experienced in Taos New Mexico. I used various luminous "Wet into Wet" Acrylic and Watercolor washes, plus a few small brushwork passages in Acrylic Gouache to heighten the "Push-Pull" textural affects I remembered between the eclectic Adobe Architecture, Evergreen Pines, and Flaming Red Sky plunging into darkness. The finished piece has random spontaneity opposing tighter more controlled areas, using variably weighted shapes and heightened color values, to form an overall balanced and unified modern composition.
