It's All Relative

Last summer we started a new tradition at the beach.
Launching Sky Lanterns!
I found an image of this in my TBC file and
thought I'd give it a try.  

"Sky Lantern" 
8 x 8

I was channelling Kevin MacPherson's  painting 
"Man with a Gold Tooth".

It's a great example of how to make something "glow"
by painting every thing surrounding it
darker and cooler! 
(It's all relative!) 


  1. I love your painting and you certainly achieved the "glow"

  2. I keep getting st(r)uck by this as a thumbnail on my blog. You sure know how to dress up the joint!

  3. Thanks for the tip on making an object "glow" Nancy...I'll have to try that!
