|'Early Morning Meeting' 5x7 gouache ©Karen Margulis $50 purchase here|
Today's painting is another small gouache I did this week. I was inspired by two of the plein air studies I did on Pawleys. I used my oil painting for the composition idea but I wanted to capture the early morning pink colors that I saw in the little plein air pastel (below)
This was a good exercise in using my studies for studio work. Now I can take all of these studies and use them for a much larger pastel painting. I love the arrangement of the egrets who gathered across the creek every morning. And while I like the warm colors of this area later in the day, I prefer the soft pinks of very early morning.
