Daily small paintings- and an occasional larger one-in a quest to refine my craft and above all, enjoy the process

Simply a Red Cup
I decided to carry this "simply theme" a bit further. The challenge (to myself) is to feature a simple object in a simple composition and pay special attention to the color scheme and the composition to set it off. I'm also trying to be more experimental. For example, I usually tone my board with a warm color- usually yellow and sometimes orange or red. I almost never use blue, green or purple. On this one, I decided that since the palette is warm, a cool underpainting would be a good idea. I really like the bits of blue peeking through.

This is lovely, Lane - I wanted to comment on the beautiful piece you have on the Daily Painters Originals site - an orange-y cup with yellow saucer - it is really riveting! Happy New Year to you, as well!ReplyDelete
I love this too! I just took a workshop with Carol in December and am anxious to do some small format paintings also. It is so encouraging to see other artists who have benefitted by painting smaller and more frequently. Thanks for being an inspiration for me! And Happy New Year too !ReplyDelete
Great idea--you've inspired me to try that. Love your cup and those bits of blue peeking through. Have a most Happy New Year!ReplyDelete
Being experimental is what helps us to find a fresh new art to share.ReplyDelete
