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!
