Colours!

This was another art class where Margie dumped this huge selection of shopping goodies together and we had to paint it! Enjoy colour! Play with colour! I am not a colorful person and found this project very difficult! I sort of cheated and started with an almost black background which helped a bit. I don't like the result and find it slightly disturbing. Not a comfortable painting,

Gosh Carol, its a lovely painting! It looks very contemporary and the colours really work.
You say that you are not a "colour" person, I also thought that about myself - I have worked on it, I believe it can be studied, practised and experimented with, it is not just something one is born with, it is a technical skill that can be acquired. What really helped me was to work with a very limited palette, one red, yellow, blue and white and get mixing!
Anyway, your painting is not at all disturbing!

Thanks Di Colour and I are still working at it. I can see that it will be a long ride. Yes, I do work with a limited pallet thanks to Margie and I have learned a lot already but can see that there is just so much further to go, but then thats "art" isn't it?
