Bring on the warm weather and the cool summer breezes. I have just finished two paintings using this summer inspired color palette. Texture was my plaything in these two and solving the problem of the metallics not wanting to live with the bright white and black. I smushed the yarns into the paint instead of glueing them down on top and used a pallette knife to make the texture on the right side before adding layers of paint. This one is on a 3" deep canvas so flows over and around the edges...she is 24" by 12".
