Progress-Discovering New Things

in progress




Here is a preview of a new large Decorator painting. My favorite part of this so far is the background. I had toned the canvas down using a few different pinks and made a slight shift in the space that isn't much like the typical way I handle large areas (as in completely flattening out the space with one solid color). I really love what is happening with the orangy-pink stripes and how they help to push everything forward and contrast what is beneath them. I'm going to keep the palette for this one limited to just warmer tones with a just few cools for contrast in places. I really want to focus on incorporating different paint handling techniques while still keeping this series cohesive and making it feel like my style. I look forward to seeing what happens with this one.
