Challenge 1-2018 Let’s Paint New Mexico
I figured I should complete one more painting before the year ends. Just a little painting, but I think it has a big personality. I am loving the purples and oranges in this palette knifeabstraction of purple iris.
This is an 18 x 18 Inch oil painting done in the CYM no K color palette. I was pleased with both the oranges and blues in this painting.
Just shaggy yellow sunflowers. I think I see a heart.
This is a 24 x 36 Inch Sunflower Oil Painting done in CYM no K (Cyan (Phthalo Blue), Cad Yellow Light, Primary Magenta and no Black) plus White. I started experimenting with this palette a few months ago and have been slowly learning its oddities. I really like the warm yellows, rusty oranges, brilliant reds, turquoise blues, vibrant purples…and I am even starting to get the hang of greens.
This is a 12x 36 inch floral abstraction that I painted for my sister’s birthday. I still need to varnish it. It is going to go great in her entry way by her turquoise bench.
I love the reds in this Iris painting. I think the blues are pretty kickin’ as well…and the greens! I also love the texture. I think I am just overall pleased with this painting. Maybe I am starting to get the hang of my experimental color palette. This one is a CMY plus white.
