A Match Burning Out

5x11 in.

Watercolor paint

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.
