8"H x 8"W Original Mixed Media Design on Canvas Panel
This week is flying by. I finally decided what I wanted to do for the Daily Paintworks "Yellow" challenge.
I had thought of sunrise, bananas,lemons, koi, and finally realized that it was all relative. In this painting, I have a cool yellow(lemon) but added a halo of red. There are sections in the design that are hot colors next to the cool yellow. With the yellow challenge, it meant "heat" to me, so I used other colors to get the heat. In painting and life, a color is always seen in relationship to the other colors around it. So I think I gave you some "heat" here with my yellow, orange, fuchsia and red combo. Drawn with permanent marker and colored with inks, markers and paint pens. There is a little color distortion, as my oranges are not quite this bright, but trying to change them just messes up the rest of the colors. I am adding this to Jennifer Mclean's The Artist Playroom challenge for this week as some of my favorite things...bright colors, and tangles! Plus Happy Birthday Jennifer!http://www.justaddwatersilly.com/ Go see what all the other artists have done.
