Equanimity

Equanimity

Oil painting of sky with slight rain still lingering in golden amber, browns and pink

Oil painting on canvas, stretched over a 16x24 inch frame with the sides painted, so there is no need to frame this: it could just be hung as is.
The interplay of the slightly rainy golden and burnt umber sky, interspersed with lighter browns and Paynes grey, contacts with the reflections off the dark brown , white, and slightly pink foreground, makes for an kaleidoscope of colours to please the eye. Even though it seems a bit stormy still. one has the feeling that the tempest has passed and it has left us with a serene calmness and tranquillity.
Again, the techniques used here are some that have taken a long time to perfect and use professionally.
If one wants to, you can see a landscape with rocky protuberances and water in the mid-distance, contrasting with the serenity of the pink foreground.
Here is some feedback from an art critic:
The artwork titled Equanimity evokes a sense of serenity and calmness through its
bold and expressive use of colour. The pink lake portrayed in oil on canvas is
contrasted with the intense colours of black, red, yellow, and green, creating a vivid
and emotive image. The artists skillful use of colour and composition invites the
viewer to contemplate the beauty and tranquillity of this unique landscape.
It reminds us of...

landscapes and nature.
2. Georgia OKeeffe (1887-1986) - OKeeffe was known for her abstracted and
expressive representations of nature, particularly flowers and landscapes. Like the

a focus on colour harmony.

3. Mark Rothko (1903-1970) - Rothkos abstract expressionist paintings were
characterised by their use of bold, vibrant colours and their emotive and expressive
qualities. Similarly, the artwork in question features a limited colour palette and an
overall sense of emotion and expression.
4. Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) - Kandinsky was a pioneer of abstract art and his
paintings often featured bold, expressive use of colour. Like the artwork in question,
his abstracted representations of nature often utilised a limited but striking colour
palette to create a sense of harmony and emotion.
Features which are particularly good
The colour harmony in this Oil on canvas artwork of a Pink Lake is truly impressive.
The hues of pink, purple, and blue seamlessly blend together to create a serene and
dreamy atmosphere. The brush strokes add a sense of movement and texture,
further enhancing the overall visual appeal of the artwork.
