RED LEAVES


The weather has turned cooler and our leaves are just beginning to fall. I found these gorgeous red leaves on my patio yesterday and fell in love with their vibrant color. One of the things that most disturbs me about my painting is the use of white. In this painting I am using strong color as a choice. It is one thing to see value and an entirely different thing to see color as value. I hope to curb the use of so much white.

The leaves are my favorite part of fall - this painting makes me smile. I love the loose brushstrokes.

I too, tend to use too much white. I will pass on to you a tip I learned with Qiang-huang, he uses naples yellow to lighten color in many instances.
