I LOVE Colour !!

I don't know how many people will read this blog, if any, but if you do follow me there is something you will find out very quickly...I am a colour junkie! For instance, recently I painted a rhino. Now rhinos are grey right? hmmm, not this one. It was a great exercise in learning to make grey from compliments, that is layering colours that are opposite on the colour wheel. I used red and green, violet and orange, blue and yellow, to make lively interesting greys. Admittedly I did end up using some real grey over parts of it to tone it down. This piece was painted on black colourfix paper using mount vision pastels. As you can see this piece is called Laugh Lines :)
