Hula Valley Marsh Acrylic Painting on Canvas: Acrylic on Canvas, 26.75×19
I painted this work from a crayon sketch I drew early one morning in the Hula Valley marsh. The medium I used is acrylic, however the painting is done in a watercolor technique. The colors in the painting are velvety and blurred throughout regardless of the specific area I painted, hence the marsh and sky are both treated with very light and soft strokes. The colors blend one into the other yet the definition of the marsh and sky are clear and separate. The brush strokes throughout the painting create a myriad of flowing colors that enhance the lyrical quality of the scene.
