Prelude to the Afternoon

Prelude to the Afternoon

Piece description from the artist

The title of this watercolor is derived from Dubussy's 'Prelude to the Afternoon of a Fawn.' A goodly number of my pieces 'borrow' from musical titles ~ but not always copied verbatim. This piece is suggestive of a warm, one might suggest hot, afternoon in the summer. The most difficult process in doing this painting was the application of the white gesso, using an adhesive spreader (used by those who tile floors) and getting it to form circular patterns. The color was the easiest part.
