"Hushed" 12x48, Oil on Canvas

"Hushed" 12x48, Oil on Canvas

I loved trying at the shades of purples and blues in this piece. I used orange to tone down the blue even though it seems like such a sweet blue. 

I wanted the feeling of coming upon a perfectly still place before the light fades away.

Lots of mixing with this one. Titanium White with Ultramarine Blue, Dioxazine Purple and Cerulean Blue with Cadmium Orange and Cadmium Yellow Light.


  1. You NAILED the Salish Sea and distant island beautiful, Dawn!

    1. I had to look up the Salish Sea. :) Thank you so much sweet friend.
