Art of the Day: Sunday June 04, 2006

Solitude, Woman at the Beach

- by Rita C. Ford

This week's theme: Memorial Day Weekend

In the United States, Monday May, 29th is Memorial Day. On this day we honor all those who died in service to the country. The 29th is also the last day of a long, holiday weekend. A weekend that is seen by many, particularly those who live in summer destination areas, as the first weekend of the summer season.

This week, Art Of The Day pauses for the solemnity of the holiday and then brings some of the summer activities that have "officially" commenced.

Art: Solitude, Woman at the Beach by Artist Rita C. Ford
This painting depicts two of my favorite pastimes, reading and relaxing at the beach. The styles in this painting range from very detailed (the woman sitting in the lounge chair) to minimalistic (the wet sand on the beach).

Primary colors used in this painting are unbleached titanium white, phthalocyanine blue, phthalocyanine green, burnt sienna, raw sienna and white.
