Key Limes and Blue Cup
Are you tired of my pathetic attempts to save this painting (formerly known as Key Limes and Purple Cup)? Clyde Semler, my much valued commenter and critic, suggested that it was missing cool blues. I thought why not give it a try; the yellow green and reddish purple combo just wasn't doing it for me. In the process, the cup became more blue than purple; thus the name change. I think I'm done with this one now. If not, I promise to quietly remove the "Buy Now" button and refrain from posting it again. I'm getting tired of it, even if you're not.

En ce qui me concerne je l'aime comme ça. chacun à son propre regard...
Like your further development of this one, and not only the color changes. Now yellow has its specific punch in those lemons by your neutralizing the strident yellow background.ReplyDelete
I also feel more breathing room around the tabletop, eye can move more around the cup. This may be due to your reworking of edges. Reinforcing certain edges and losing others has resulted in a more complex interaction of objects and ground.
