Day 8 - Red-Orange

Untitled, Acrylic on Crescent Board, 10"x10", $125

Day 8 - Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days

This painting is a re-do of a previous work - I used one piece earlier in the week, now I am using another piece to create this one.  I like the red-orange I get when I mix Alizarin Crimson with Cadmium Orange - put that with some Phthalo Blue and you've got some amazing energy. I'm still trying to figure out how to construct a successful abstract - it's not easy. Without recognizable objects to work with, the weights and importance of various elements rely solely on things like relative size, location, saturation and color - and it's all relative. With all that, I think this one is pretty good.

A gorgeous painting, Anna!
My former watercolor teacher said abstracts are the most difficult paintings to do - that they should elicit an emotional response. I think you have definitely succeeded here!!
