This is an excerpt from the notes I am keeping for the Color Project (working title). I am trying to understand the colors I see through multiple mediums. Painting is important, but describing the colors through writing helps me understand the perception on a different level.
“The air is invigorating. Energy from the day’s storms is charging everything around me. I walk quickly, as the sun is minutes from setting and I want to catch all the drama. The colors are absolutely vibrant throughout the park. I take lots of pictures- everything I see amazes me. Sharp bands of early evening light dance off of the tree trunks like fire. The greens of the trees are made razor sharp by the lingering moisture in the air. A gentle purple has settled over everything and is complimented by a flickering yellow sunset.”
