My Collection


This one doesn't have any wild color ... well, any wild color that wasn't actually THERE anyway. But I'm really happy with it anyway. I find that it doesn't come naturally to me to change the colors. It's not an instinct. I have to TRY to change them, and often I get to the end of a painting, having fully intended to experiment, and everything is the same. I'm pondering the implications.

I know exactly what you mean! I often have an idea, and end up doing something totally different from my initial intent whether it be similar to what I usually do or in a totally new direction altogether.
Anyway this being said, this painting has very bright colours already and it might be difficult to make them bolder or brighter? Just guessing.

See my comment under "A Little Extra Color".

I think perhaps you're still in "teacher" mode here, nothing wrong with that,(did I not read in your blog somewhere that you're taking a hike from teaching seminars this year?)so go and fall flat on your face a few times.

"Little Extra Color" was a huge jump in perception of where you are and where you can be.
