Kauai Taro Fields
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
"Kauai Taro Fields" is a wrap-around
acrylic painting on a 14x11 canvas.
After visiting in 2010 on vacation in Kauai,
we stopped to take photos at the Hanalei Lookout
in northern Kauai and the beautiful
taro fields next to the mountains.
This valley is apparently where most of the taro is
grown in Hawaii. Taro root is pounded and used to make poi.
This painting depicts a mid day scene
with clouds hugging the mountains and
creating various shadows in the valley which I
tried to capture. There were a few huts and roads in
the fields. The far mountains were painted with
various blues and magenta colors and thinned
out with water to create distance. The nearby
bush was painted in more vibrant greens and contrast
since it was near where the photo was taken in the foreground.
No acrylic medium was used. Hope you enjoy...
