Orange and Purple Sunset; ACE Basin 20 X 16 "
Purples and shades of orange do occur commonly in our lowcountry scenes but we don't regularly acknowledge them. If one strolls around Charleston's numerous art galleries, one will see how much our fine artists have illustrated this. These colors do not easily come to mind when looking at such scenes. However, these colors look so appropriate when these artists bring them forward in their paintings.
Sunsets are especially good at showing these colors as the atmosphere fragments the sunlight at the rim of the planet. Orange and purple are wonderful colors when lying adjacent to each other. Calm water surfaces double the beauty as happened it this scene.
This painting is 20 X 16 ' and is an acrylic on canvas. It weighs a little over one pound.
