On Sunday I completed two small paintings. First, a 6" x 6"still life of radishes, too beautiful to consume before painting their vibrant redness in a green bowl. Later, Nancy posed in a flashy gold jacket at the Candlelight Studio. She seemed to be channeling her inner rock star, maybe 80's era judging by the big shoulders. I painted on a 6" x 12" canvas panel. What do these two have in common: warm colors! After plein air trips to see mostly green foliage and gray skies, it was great to rediscover red!
