Playing with Paint by Pamela Blaies

10" x 8"

Today I had some fun with paint! I did four small studies with lemons, working fast and loose. I experimented with some different colors today. This painting looks a little different than a lot of my recent work because I substituted Pthalo Blue for Ultramarine Blue and used cool-ish colors for the background. I love this blue! It gives the painting a fresh feeling, full of light. Below is a photo of the toned canvas at the block-in phase. Tomorrow I might try something like this again, but tone it orange instead of neutral.....
