|Sharon Kingston Atmospheric Landscape Paintings, Being Radiant, 48 x 48 inches, oil on canvas|
My method of painting is to layer transparent colors in an effort to trap light and create depth. However, I've become dependent on a set palette of paints to do this--in effect limiting my use of the wide range of pigments available to me as a painter. The series I've defined for myself this year are an effort to break through to using a more "radiant" palette but yet retain what is important to me--creating a contemplative space for the viewer.
Here is the first painting of the new year, titled Being Radiant, 48 x 48 inches, oil on canvas. It was inspired by the intention to illuminate and inspire.
