"Out of the Sun",26.6" X 27.5" fluid acrylic and watercolor - SOLD

Out of the Sun by April M Rimpo

Out of the Sun was inspired by the wonderful architecture in Antigua, Guatemala and the affects of the sun shining through the pillars and archways.  This painting captures the mood of the people relaxing in the shade, the great patterns created by the sun, the glow of reflected light on the inside of the pillars, and the halos that surrounded the people about to emerge from the shade at the end of the walkway. 

I created this painting using a combination of fluid acrylic and watercolor on hot press paper.  I love the texture I can create using fluid acrylics and the great blends of colors possible with watercolor.  This painting was awarded second place at a Baltimore Watercolor Society exhibit at Kentlands Mansion in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
