Joe and Sarah Sailing
One of Candace Lovely’s earlier works, this portrait and birthday gift was also the artist’s first commission piece. Painted in Palmetto Dunes, on Hilton Head Island South Carolina, it captures a brother and sister duo in a candid moment of play. With the older sibling helping the younger to learn to set sail to model boats, the pair is featured in a soft morning light with cool outdoor shadows and warm highlights. Notice as the shadows reflect themselves they turn warmer than the base blues of the ocean setting, a companion to the mauve and pink-purple tones that anchor the palette throughout.
