A Match Burning Out
Painted in 2017
Original sold, prints for sale
This painting is part of my hyper-realistic style of watercolor painting. I studied the decay of matches as they were being lit in order to accurately paint this scene. The progressive burning of the match represents time slowly moving forward. This piece was also made with the intention of playing around with colors. The hot fire painted in orange brings the piece to life, while the blues contrasting with the yellows and oranges keep the piece alive.
