Kaitlyn's Sanibel Drawing Meditation is a eye catching piece where realism marries abstract art. We love the contrast of the dark and bright hues, what are your thoughts?

I know Kaitlyn's work from before, yet this piece really caught my eye because of the contrast of the dark realism and bright colorfulness I know from Kaitlyn personality. It like she brights things up :-)

I love Kaitlyn's use of dark and bright colors to emphasize the light coming from the lighthouse. It's also really fun how she mixed realism and abstract pieces in her work. Love it!

I like the contrast a lot, the contrast in style of dark and bright and in colours and shape. Light is fantastic and the way how its shown here is wonderful. I enjoy the light and the dark parts, thats life!

For me, this captures the essence of a lighthouse scene perfectly. Utilizing a more abstract approach and still achieving this is no small task. Great work!
