"Lily Mansion, Indianapolis, ID"
oil on canvas panel - 10x8 in
A painting from one of my "AH HA" moments.... This started out life as a plein air painting. I set up at the Lily Mansion just in time for it to start raining. So I shot some reference photos and went back to the hotel room to paint there. But that was before I had learned to give myself permission to not use the colors that were before me. After the "Eureka" moment when I realized there was no cosmic rule that said I had to use the colors I actually saw, I pulled this painting out, scraped it down, and completely redid it in a color harmony that I chose. I am much more pleased. Funny how long it can take for a simple concept to sink into my brain.
Thank you for looking! #impressionism#ahhamoment#colorharmony#lilymansion#indianapolis#landscape#landscapesofinstagram#cecilewmorgan#painterly#rainyday
Photo by @stephenwilkes | A lone rhino ambles through this painterly scene in the Ngorongoro Crater. This three million year old crater was once a volcano, said to be similar in height to Mount Kilimanjaro before its eruption. It now exists as a natural enclosure for approximately 25,000 animals, allowing photographers and scientists alike to get a closer look at many endangered species who reside here. To see more photos from my travels near and far, follow me @stephenwilkes. #StephenWilkes#Tanzania#Rhino#Endangered#Painterly#Nature#Landscape#NationalGeographic#NgorongoroCrater
: The Acacia is one of the ubiquitous, and most recognizable, trees of the Southern African veld. Nothing evokes the feelings of Africa more, to me, then the Acacia silhouetted against the African sky.
Painterly effect applied to original image captured in Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
