“Fields of Gold” 11″ x 9″ watercolor. Please message me if interested.
Paint My Photo’s Monthly Challenge for both June and July is to paint an image inspired by a song. However, the chosen song must have a color in its titled.
Sting’s “Fields of Gold” immediately popped into my mind. While looking through reference photos on this great website, I found one by Freda Austin Nichols of this woman with her violin. While the original photo had her set against a gigantic moon, the beauty of being an artist is changing things to fit what you envision.
Humming the song since I read the Challenge, I also used the exercise to work on my people painting skills again. Though cheating a bit as this one is from the back.
If you haven’t heard this haunting song recently, here’s a link.
“Did You Art Today?”
