Darkness Falls

Darkness Falls.  Watercolor.
Approximately 12 x 16 inches.
I think I mentioned that I got some new colors in my last art supply order.  One of those is a new blue that's used heavily in the sky here:  Indanthrone Blue by Daniel Smith.  It is an intense, almost purple blue.  I like it.  Other colors are quin burnt orange (in the building's roof), nickel azo yellow (mainly in the foreground), and quin....I'd have to get up to double check this.  It's either quin red or quin pink.  Paper is Kilamanjaro 300 lb cold press from a block.

I like this painting.  I think the composition appeals to me.  I realize that I say that as the painter, but I don't always have a plan when I start these made up landscapes, and this one worked out to be fairly successful.

Whoops, I came back to add that it's for sale on daily paintworks--if you're interested, you can scope here:  http://www.dailypaintworks.com/buy/auction/608584
