A quick study done several days ago too loosen up..... Today I've added more intense color to it and like its strength. Fun to play ~ intuition does speak doesn't it!! I once did a project whereby numerous colors of colored tissue papers were torn and adhered to the susrface, once dried contour drawings were done.
Figures from behind always seem curious! Making one wonder.......where is she going, where has she been?........ Leaving a lot to the imagination of the viewer.
Its cold and wet in NC today and a great day to stay in and do art! Along with this painting, I was also able to work on some drawings for several watercolor paintings I plan to start this week.
Reading a couple of good books on color theory also ~ COLOR, by Betty Edwards (author of Drawing on the RIght Side of the Brain) and BLUE AND YELLOW DONT MAKE GREEN (or is it YELLOW AND BLUE DONT MAKE GREEN !!!) by Michael Wilcox.
I taught art and photography, in public and private schools, in NC and Alabama, while also doing commissions and freelance art work. Later, moving into the commerical arena of art, I did research for Crayola Crayon and was an art director for NBC television.
I'm happy to say, several years ago I began painting again and I'm excited, as always, about sharing the arts with others!
