Who’s afraid of red and yellow?

detail from unfinished painting

another detail from unfinished painting










When the sky is grey and the rain keeps coming down, I have the urge to use bright warm colors… And if the sun is shining – as it was today – the colors are really screaming out! The painting is not finished yet, I like working in layers to give more depth and texture to the forms. Unfortunately the delicate textures in the red and in the orange almost disappear in the photograph because of the high contrasts in the yellow.
