West Florida Sunset by Patsy Lindamood
Original Watercolor Pencil on Specialty Paper
Some years ago, my husband and I spent a weekend in a state park in West Florida, after delivering work nearby for a pastel society exhibition. The park turned out to be a hidden gem, and I have created multiple works from photos I took there that weekend. I’ve painted this bay at sunset previously, from a slightly different angle, in boldly colored pastels. For this work, I wanted the tone of the piece to be softer, gentler, more calming and cool. It is done from one of the last shots I took that night, right before the sun disappeared.
