The slashes of gold in this watercolor painting give an impression of looking at flashes of light in a darkening sky. To achieve this effect, I used shades of red, yellow and, orange watercolors. I painted this 9x12-inch piece on heavyweight cold press paper. It is unframed, but comes with a gold mat 11x14 inches in size. This is an original work of mine, and would undoubtedly make a fine art gift.
