Thank you CaliAnn, Lamar, and Joe.
Yes I have been playing with color lately and trying to find the color of my voice. More play time as I work that out. So many choices of palette with 6 to 8 colors. 2 of each of the of the three primaries [1 Warm and 1 Cold]. Sometimes a few earth colors as they are much cheaper to buy that to mix down to.
I like this palette too, Wayne, especially the bright green in the background. Those strokes enhance the already-beautiful flowers. It's cool how you're using flowers as vehicles to explore color - keep 'em coming!
Thank you Donna. Actually it's a two edged sword .. I get to explore expressionism at the same time so it's interesting to see what comes out and I guess I am learning how much is enough and how much is not enough. I just know it's much more exciting than trying to render a flower as a lifeless object.
