Ken Daggett’s “Afternoon Light” is an original oil painting completed on a canvas panel.  The painting uses a blend of pinks and purples to create the textures of distant hillsides and rock walls.  Additional colors appear, adding depth and drama to the scene.  Strokes of green in the shadowed areas signify plant life in a distanced, abstracted way.  Across the canyon in the sunlit areas, bright white and bold blue appear. 

The canyon’s two walls are divided by a fertile green floor, which ultimately curves behind a rock formation and out of sight.  The mountains and mesas in the distance are represented by a band of pastel purple with subtle peaks and valleys.  Above this, a band of white with hints of blue creates a beautiful clear sky.  The image as a whole feels dreamy and beautiful, and Daggett’s color palette—pink and purple, mostly, with splashes of bolder tones throughout—adds a burst of energy without going so far as to feel unrealistic.  “Afternoon Light” is a bright and appealing Southwestern scene.
