Orange Fantasia, oil on canvas 25"x31"x1.5", 2022
Original oil on canvas with frame size 25"x31"x1.5"
“Sunset kisses thousand trees,
Landscape is endless and suddenly new.”
When I made this painting, I thought of no specific place. Instead I imagined a certain kind of glow that I could best express by putting down bright cadmium orange and yellow in large areas. These colors release my Fall fantasy, because I associate them with the idea of radiance, or glow. Through colors, I am able to express this sensitivity accurately and forcefully. During Fall, the bright orange is one of those really attention-grabbing colors. It relates wonderfully with cool blues.
I painted four to five layers in different times to create the rich texture and color’s interaction.
