I am sitting here watching the snow drift slowly to the ground. We should have 2 inches of snow by 7:00 am tomorrow morning. It’s very peaceful so I thought I would write a new post.
I have completed my third painting in the Harmony series. This one is Harmony in Yellow, Orange and Green. I used 5 yellows, 2 oranges, 2 greens and panicked because the painting was so aggressive and unpleasant looking. I pulled out my trusty quin gold and painted a light wash over about 80 percent of the painting. That added a subtleness that encouraged me to proceed. I did finish the painting and am happy. It is so hard to work with orange and combining it with green in a colorful abstract can careen out of control quickly. Here is the final painting.
