|"City Dreams" - 20" x 16" acrylic on 1.5" canvas|
Another cityscape using complementary colors - again a very limited palette. I wanted to do something that looked Mid-Century, but didn't want to do turquoise with orange, so I opted for a creamy soft Light Ultramarine Blue by Golden instead. The building shapes look contemporary to me though - and that worked for me. I had to really hold myself back from trying to add more colors or change the "sky" - and I'm glad I did now. I like the end result and would have lost it entirely had I gone rogue with my earlier desires!
I'm behind again in finishing the paintings (ie signing; wiring; varnishing; finishing the sides), and need to get a jump on that this week. I know - in my spare time :-) But seriously - I need to get those paintings finished so I can show them to another art consultant and her client. Nothing like a little pressure to get this artist busy!
