How can you tell? It's aready yellow orange. I'm not really sure what this equipment is.
It was on a paved road through the Wildlife Refuge. It looks like some kind of sweeper, which is odd because this is a road that doesn't need tidying. It was sitting off to the side in the tangled undergrowth of the Refuge and the sunlight lit it up so that it glowed. Light is the factor artists seek, and there it was in an array of glory. No matter that it's just a lowly piece of road equipment. To an artists eye it was an arrangement of angular and rounded shapes with striking color and light. Made me turn the car around to catch it. Most of what I paint is from the side of the road. Scenes just sit there and wait on me, it seems.
