Twilight

My Granddaughter's friend asked me if I can paint him this from a photo he had for years!  I immediately loved the colors in the sky as well as the beautiful reflections in the water....so of course, I said I would.  He loved it!  Something a little different from my norm!!

  1. Hilda, is this chalk or oils? A great challenge which I must say you certainly rose to meet head on.

  9. Hi my dear friend,

    I love this pastel painting. I'm sure that your Grandmother's friend love it too.
    The Colors and the beautiful sky give a magical view. It's difficult to me to tell you in english everything i think.
    Il faut aimer et ressentir le sujet pour pouvoir s'en inspirer et le peindre avec autant de talent.
    Big Kisses
