December Reds


"December Reds"
12x12 oil on linen board
This is my latest piece, just finished.  Discovery, reds are difficult!  So much warmth needs to be balanced by cool vibration, this is where the magenta vibration comes in.  There's a LOT of paint on this canvas, so it was even more difficult than normal for me to photograph, lots of glare.  I think the painting is probably more subtle than shows in the photo but I got to the point that I thought I'd just get it up and posted.  But you get the idea, hope you enjoy!

Thank you David, it was certainly a challenge. :) There are subtleties that I just couldn't get with the camera but I guess you get the idea. THanks for checking in and Happy Painting!
