. . . consulted color wheels
This is a small 20 x 20" painting I finished last week. I love the background color, which is an unusual color for my paintings. But I was stuck. . . I didn't know where to go after I applied the black and white elements. So I actually dug out the color wheels that I have and came up with this slightly unusual color pallette. Those color wheels really work, don't they? I deepened the background with additional washes and glazes of purple.
During yesterday's open house I lugged three big boxes of books to Half Price Books. Their offer was actually more than I had expected, and they assured me that the books they didn't want would not go to a landfill somewhere, but were donated eventually. With part of the proceeds, I took Joey and Betsy to Sonic for smoothies.
I know, I know: I live such an exciting life. What a whirlwind of activity. . .
