Flavors of the South by BJ Wright

12" x 9" oil on stretched canvas - painted en plein air, alla prima - $108 including shipping -
While mixing the paints for this one, I was musing about the delicious colors of this early morning scene. The sunlight hitting the second story porch was a wonderful orange sherbet or
peach iced tea. The deep red shadow side was raspberry jam or perhaps plum butter. The darkest shadows were licorice and the new grass was limeade. Mint julep anyone??

I love the "food" colors of this. Very Attractive. I am going to attempt to link your blog on mine.

Nice one BJ! I like the food colors too, I wouldn't mind a mint julep about now!

Painting this scene was surreal. The colors as the light hit the old house and spring house were really food colors! I couldn't believe it. I was smiling as I was painting and thinking, "They'll not believe this."
