Color Shifts

purpleorange_landscape I’ve been trying to paint more color in my greys in my last few paintings. I always admire it when I see paintings that have a subtle rainbow of color in their neutrals. The trouble is I tend to muddy them up and then everything turns either brown or purple – the purple I like, but the brown is regrettable. I need to get over my need to make all the colors blend into one – let the different hues and tints sit side by side instead.browngreen_landscape

  1. Interesting – I like how it turned out and think it was a success. Good exercise and practice – I agree, it’s not black and white/grey – it’s green/grey, yellow/grey, etc.
