Storm Runoff

Storm Runoff, 9 x 12″ soft pastel on Wallis paper
2010 Marianne Post

Completed in the studio over a watercolor underpainting. I couldn’t decide whether to leave the telephone poles in or out, Decided on keeping them since I liked how the shadow of the nearest pole acted as another path for the eye to follow.

    The poles are interesting. I think this painting would work with or without them. I like it with and love the color transitions from pink to gray to violet to blue alternating with the greens and how this moves us through the painting.

    I think I like them in but I agree that the painting would look fine either way. They add nice contrast to the horizontal elements and the shadows are nice. Very nice painting.

      Linda, I think just for the fun of it I will take the image into Photoshop and eliminate the poles, just to see. And Katherine I am borrowing your idea using this technique.
