In this Kailua beach art I drew an oil pastel orchid as the setting Oahu Hawaiian sun against dusky charcoal palm trees.
Not so much rock, water and sky but I used charcoal to black out the island and white space to evoke reflected light on the water in this Hawaii art. And as for the Maui sunset, well…
The British rain hasn’t actually stopped, but neither has my summer art exhibition! I’m so excited to have been offered an extension to my exhibit through July 31st at Chorak 122-122A High Rd, East Finchley, N2 9ED.
Here I am pictured with friends there last week, proving you can still have fun even when it’s raining, especially when I’d put my all into the colorful artwork offerings served up inside. If you’re in London for the Olympics, I hope you’ll be able to stop by too!
More dark, rain clouds in London for June? Duck into Chorak 122-122A High Rd, East Finchley, N2 9ED and maybe, dive into some ‘bright and shiny’ Hawaiian art during the last week of my art exhibit, “It Sparkles – Summer ‘12 – Douglas Rickard Exhibition.”
There are up to 20, of my framed, giclées. And even those pieces without my trademark “heightened color,” I believe, have enough “light” coming out of them, that they’ll be sure to add some color to your cheeks on the blusteriest of British summer days.
