Evening Arrival

This one was just an explosion of rich color, totally fun! I had in mind a goal to stay relatively loose and simply dash in the pigments, rather than trying to over-think or excessively control the marks. I've been inspired to return to more spontaneity in part by the paintings that Maggie Latham has put up on her Small Works blog. Beautiful stuff--take a look.

Painted in gouache, again on Bristol Vellum, 2.5" x 3.5".



  1. Beautiful bright colours, Deborah. I love the dash of minimal light in the foreground. Did you work on this flat or at an angle?

  2. Thanks, Maggie. I work flat on the table, but I devised a holder made of mat board that I place my card in so I can lift, turn, and handle it without making big fingerprints along the edges.

  3. Dear Deborah,
    Just wanted to let you know that I am taking a break from blogging and closing my blogs. You have always been so kind to leave comments from time to time, so wanted to let you know. I wish you all success with your own painting career.
    Maggie Latham
