Sunset in Paradise Watercolor by terikor
When I think of the theme “In the Deep Blue”, I think of the wonderful colors that the ocean waters can display from reflections of the light at different times of the day. terikor chose "Sunset in Paradise" for July's theme because the sea in Hawaii is the most colorful and the Hawaiian sunset creates an even more beautiful array of colors that have exudes both a romantic quality as well as inspirational.
Sunset In Paradise was created while I was on vacation in Kauai and shows how relaxed and loose I was with both my subject matter and colors.
I let my individual pieces of art dictate which charity should be represented. In the case of Sunset in Paradise it is the California Wildlife Center because they assist Marine animals and birds. Although they are not located in Hawaii they do assist coastal animals and are located in the beach community of Malibu, California. I also like to support animal charities in California, my home state.
