Brown County Indiana is famous as an art colony. In the late 1800s a group of artists settled there. Since then, hundreds of other artists have felt that Brown County was their spiritual home. The town has a charming area with shops, restaurants, hotels and cabins. A favorite place to go is the Artist’s Colony Inn. They have a great restaurant.
One morning I was in the area. As I walked toward the Inn, a group of ladies lined up and went in for breakfast. I was intrigued by the sunlight behind them. The glow of the sun made the leaves in the trees a bright yellow, while the shadow side was blue. The buildings in the shade had a bluish tint and the others were slightly yellow from the sun.
I have tried to duplicate the feeling of that morning. I put the hanging plants and flowers in front of them to create atmospheric perspective. The flags above the woman’s head are painted small, giving the impression they are further back.
