I used a series of photographs as reference for this small painting.  I started by layering several coral and pink colors, and adding rich transparent colors in the shadows.  The surface shimmers and the hazy background recedes into a winter fog.  The contrast is stunning.  I changed the background four or five times until it finally complied to my vision. This piece is on canvas board and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Kent

There are more places Kent Sullivan would like to paint than he ever will be able. Employing many of the Hudson River School methods in his landscapes, Kent captures the ephemeral interactions of clouds, sun and earth with his delicate use of color and gesture. His work is published in two prominent books: "Art of the National Parks" and "Picturing Florida." He has lectured at museums and been sought after by many large corporations. “Several years ago I had the incredible fortune of being part of the NASA art program. Five paintings are now part of the Smithsonian Collection. At one gathering at the Kennedy Space Center, Leonard Nimoy came up and asked me for my autograph!”
