We are looking into a ranch-turned-nature-preserve in southern AZ near a forest service outpost called Canelo, elev. 4,900 ft. Believe it or not this is our Wine Country. Think- Napa Valley of the Desert Southwest…
Anyway, back to painting.
This conservation zone is teaming with avian and terrestrial fauna. I am slow on the camera-draw, but that is a deer bounding away.
Today I try a rectangular tetrad harmony which includes: yellow, green, violet and red-tube colors; cad yellow light, ultramarine blue +cad yel light for green, ultramarine +cad red purple for violet, and cad red purple for red. Something different.
Check out the unbelievable color and technique in Valerie’s work. She uses knives, brushes, digits-whatever it takes.
Valerie will open her studio for This Fall’s Open Studio Tour: Nov 9,10. Look for “Alley Cat Studio” in the downtown area.
A little “pinky-work”-saves an otherwise overly repetitive composition.
Paint on People!
