A Follow Up to Yesterday's Color Rut Post
In yesterday's post about a simple exercise for getting out of a color rut, I mention having created two small paintings in a color palette I don't ordinarily use. Those colors were alizarin crimson, Payne's grey and Titan Buff. As promised, here's a photo of the 8x8 inch piece. I plan to mount it on a 10x10 white cradled wood panel, and will be offering it for sale in a few days through my web site and in my Daily Paintworks gallery.
As you can see, this painting which is as yet untitled, reveals considerably more Payne's grey and alizarin crimson. I'm really warming to these colors, so I may do a much larger piece in this combo in the near future.
Meanwhile, I'd welcome your help on coming up with a title for the painting above. Do you have any suggestions? If so, please share your thoughts!
