Gloria J Zucaro's "Not So Mellow Yellow"

8"H x 8"W Original  Mixed Media Design on Canvas Panel
$55.00/$7.00 S&H

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!  Go see what all the other artists have done.
