This particular art print is something a little different from my usual norm. I typically don’t focus in on people, but in this case there was a mood element that caught my eye. The look of solitude and intense thought is what drew me to this scene of a man just standing and “pondering” the surf. To create the mood I was perceiving, I used the same technique I had used on the New Orleans series I featured last week. With that series, it complimented the old world look… in this case it helped create a subtle mood to highlight the sense of what I saw in this scene. Because of that element, I have also used this print twice in my Inspiration Gallery with a prayer overlay on one and the Lord’s Prayer as on overlay on the other.
Whether it’s a black and white or color photograph or one of my digitally painted art prints, my attempt is to capture a moment or a scene that invokes some type of an emotional or visual response. Thoughts? (side note: the setting for this print is a seclude beach on Kauai in the Hawaiian Islands. The beach is accessed by hiking a trail that takes you up and along the cliffs of the Na Pali coastline and then down onto this beach)

“Eye of Sun” The Art print of the week is from my Tropical Gallery. A sunset over the Pacific Ocean taken along the beach in Carlsbad, California (North San Diego County). I love the way the palm trees frame the sun as it goes down. I used an abstract oil painting technique to give it an edgy modern look to celebrate the vibrant colors. Enjoy!
The art print I’m using for this post is a watercolor of a New England fishing village. The setting is a coastal New England town in the early morning. The fog is still hanging over the harbor and creates a serene peaceful scene. Using watercolor to capture the scene supports the softer hues and tones.
