|A few of my Spicy Greens|
|Close up of the spicy greens in use|
I like to consider these artificial looking (some might even say garish) greens as my spices. They add an interesting element to a painting. And like a spice used in cooking, a little bit goes a long way. I choose to use my spicy greens at the end of a painting when I am trying to pull everything together. A few well placed spicy marks can help lead the viewer around the painting. Just remember not to overdo the spicy marks or they will lose their impact.
I will be sharing the way I make my spicy marks in a future post. Be sure to sign up for blog updates on the sidebar so you don't miss a post!
Today's painting is the demo I did last night for the Artist Guild of Northwest Georgia. I really enjoyed sharing with this great group of artists. Thank you!
