Impressionistic Golds with Blue

This was inspired by the warm blanket of night air as we returned from a summer family boat cruise. The blues of the coming evening were a beautiful foil to the golden hues of the town lights and reflecting mountains as the sun dipped down in the west. I used acrylic, large brushes, and fingers to paint this.

When I take a photo I don’t usually get the exact image I remember seeing. I have to catch an impression and hope my photo triggers enough information to recall what inspired me.
