"There is a moment, just before dusk, when a brilliant sunset above the darkening shoreline intermixes deliciously with the smoky glow of beachgoers' bonfires," says artist Dorothy Dunn. Dorothy layered vibrant orange and purple over soft smokey colors, intuitively recreating the scene in her mind. "I developed this painting using multiple raw and controlled pours of transparent and saturated acrylic paint to achieve layered depth and interest," Dorothy says of her process.

Dorothy learned the joy of putting color to canvas in her grandfather’s art studio at an early age. He encouraged her to explore art using oil pastels alongside his easel while he painted. She soon progressed to her own easel and oil paint, inspiring a love of art she followed through college and into adulthood. Dorothy’s approach to her abstract artwork entails pouring paint in transparent and saturated layers to create sweeping colors across the canvas. Grandfather’s easel still has a place of honor in her art studio, in fact you can see it used to display her paintings on UGallery.
