Color Reflections

Every once in a while I get in a loose, kind of sloppy mood for painting. I have no idea what predicates this ... my mood ... the weather ... the stars? Tee hee. Today was one of those days and I just decided to go for it. I really like the painting and the colors kind of jump off the painting.  I use to comment in my workshops that Cad Orange was my favorite color. But I have grown away from that ... and now I absolutely love the combination of cad orange, alizrin and cad yellow. I could paint all day with these three colors ... Maybe I should. Go out and try it!

WOW! I think this is my very favorite of yours. (seems like I'm always saying that.)The colors are fantastic. Love the way the background suggests a tree reflection. Oh, and that spot of turquoise on the side of the boat...perfect!

Thanks Gabe. And Gwen ... I am so glad you like the tree reflections. I was hoping someone would figure that out!

Maybe it was cleaning all of the egg off your floors and walls.
Pretty just the same.

Marian - you are too funny. But yu are probably right ...

Pamela Gatens said...

Leslie - very nice! Your color sense is sooooo good. Nice composition too, by the way!

I really like this 'sloppy mood' painting. It has so much energy and I like how you've repeated the boat color in the background.
