Even now I’m looking at the image and asking how did this marvelous color scheme happen! The blending of yellow over pink makes orange. And blending with a napkin! I think I’ve found the answer to adding more color to my paintings. Texture.
You know how you see something beautiful. Oh right, a tree painting in a museum in Mexico. By the way, it was a photo but it left me wanting to stand before it. The greens were so vibrant and made me wonder about the artist. What paint did the artist use? How did the artist mix it up? I want to know the story.
That’s the path I’m on. Not sure where this texture road is headed, but my sketchbook is filled with wonderful ideas. Here’s to more of them!
