Fields of Gold
Sometimes I add an element to a picture as I create it just as an experiment, something that wasn't originally supposed to be there; but, once that element is in place, I can't imagine the picture without it. An example of this is in the picture you see here. On the right side, toward the top of the mountain range I added a yellow cloud just before I finished this picture. I thought for certain that it would be erased right after I put it in, but it stayed because I really think it adds a balance to the yellows of the picture. I also love the purples here, the dark purple of the mountains is accentuated by the lilac of the clouds, I think it feels rich, warm and inviting.
