Artists today enjoy an amazing variety of colors to work with, yet it is the lighting that captures our attention, telling a story of the time, place and the atmosphere thereby setting a mood. For me it is the joy and challenge of judging and mixing color to define what the light is doing. My objective is in answering questions like Why does the color green fade and disappear in low light, or What happens to red in a shadow, How are edges affected by direct light.
Whether painting a portrait, landscape or abstract; my focus turns to the nuance of the color changes.
