6" x 6" x 1.5" Oil on wood cradled panel
This really should be in the Spring lineup but I really felt like painting something red. I find it difficult to paint anything red because it is so vibrant. On the up side you really get to know your paints a little better while searching for whatever it takes to bring up that vibrancy. Primary red, permanent rose and here's where I had a bit of difficulty and that was to have found a very cool red, a magenta that tinted to almost a blue for some of the cooler hilites.
My posts have slowed down a bit but that doesn't mean I'm not painting. An illustration job that segued into a series in water-colour that I've been wanting to do for a long time now has been wrestling for my attention to these little small format oils. So I may just sprinkle a few of these other mediums in among my postings.
I did warn you in previous posts that my titles are terrible. I couldn't resist the reference to harkening back to a spring theme by calling this post "Spring back....." ok, I think I'll move on now.....
