Another for my show, I'm getting very close to being done. I'm looking forward to getting back to the daily painting experience. I have been painting every day, but it's been all day every day. I miss painting the small ones. (I wonder if I remember how to paint small.)
This one reminded me how much the colors around a color, effect our perception of it. I had toned the canvas orange, and when I started painting the cloth I was sure the color that I had mixed was a very warm gray, but it looked too cool. Sure enough when I added the cool gray background the color that had looked so cool next to the orange tone, now looked very warm. I know these things, but it can still surprise me. Luckily I had trusted my color mix and hadn't made it any warmer.
