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 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.
Just messing around with a relatively new set of primary colors. Cyan, Magenta and Yellow plus white.
I discovered cadmium orange a few weeks ago. I hate to admit that I can’t mix an orange as pure as cad orange out of the tube. It is such a happy color! I like to keep my colors to a minimum (I usually have about 10 colors I work from), but lately I’m thinking cad orange and cerulean blue need to be part of my palette.
This is a rework of a previous painting. Originally, the painting was purple with yellow sunflowers. I changed a few things. The most obvious being that the vase is now orange. I personally like it better because I enjoy lots of color. The orange made my day. However, my mom, for example prefers the previous version. To each his own, especially with art.
This is the previous version. I was working with compliments and kept the painting mainly to purple and yellow.
This is a 16 x 20 inch still life of sunflowers in a very cool orange vase. I am loving the colors in this painting. The orange and gold are really nice against the blues and greens of the background. Unfortunately, we have a man down once again and it looks as if only one sunflower cares. Bummer.
