Here is a pastel painting on paper. It is a luminist view of a sunset overlooking a cottage and a lake. The use of pastels enables the superior blending of colors. The subtle pinks blend into greens which are then overshadowed by patches of thin grey clouds. The dark foreground of the foliage serves to outline and heightens the luminous sunset.
The work measures 5” by 7” to sight and 11 ½” by 13 ½ “in the gilt, sold wood cove frame which features a beaded liner. The work is covered by glass. The artist’s monogram can be found on the bottom right corner.
