|All the Reds In, oil on canvas, 48 x 48 inches|
I just love working with red paint. Red on red. Red on orange, Red on blue...on and on. With this work the reds dictated the show. Here is a line of trees bounded by yellow at the bottom and sky at the top, but it is all about how the reds will flow through the scene in a believable way.
The trees went through a lot of changes - it looks simple now, but the trees and light required considerable rearranging and tuning. Once those blues and pinks were added, the composition came together gracefully and powerfully.
My grateful thanks to the private collector that purchased this for her home.
