I’m not a camper but I do love a good fire, especially when there’s a chill in the air.

This was my first attempt at painting fire. The biggest challenge was making sure that the colors of the flames pop. I started out with more of a black background but it seemed to dull things. After adding the purple marks of pastel it started to come together.

As some of you know I lean towards realism. I knew that once I started this campfire painting that I needed to adjust my eye to suggest the trees and rocks. I’m very happy with the result!
