Just A Touch Of Red
Touch of Red
7x5in oil on canvas board 90.
Okay, Christmas is not even here yet and I find I am already red and green(ed) out.
Green is my least favorite color and red is my favorite. My problem is when I see something as stunning as holly with the bright red berries, I want paint it...and I have been trying to do just that for a couple of days but keep having to wash it off. I will keep trying.
This painting is to clear away all vestiges of red and green.
Behold, a touch of red with a little blue and the most grayed green I could mix.
I am a painter living in Las Cruces, NM. After many years as an illustrator I turned to fine art to develop my own artistic voice. I currently teach talented and enthusiastic artists in oil, acrylic and egg tempera painting. I am also a member of the Artist Guild of Southern New Mexico.
