"Green Apples on Purple" 6x6 oil $100
I had a revelation, an epiphany, an aha moment of sorts. Yesterday I was discouraged, I had a wipe-out which meant I was behind or at least not caught up. I am not able to paint everyday.
I looked at some paintings and read a few posts and realized I was not the only one feeling this way so today I decided to have some fun. I wanted to try colors I don't usually use. Katia Kyte inspired me to see how colors affected each other and Helen Griffith's painting of 9/14 inspired me to try painting with as little white as possible. So I did this today and even though I don't particularly like the results, I had fun and I learned and that's what its all about.
I like to sketch with a golden section grid. It helps me compose but I also find it relaxing.
