Crystal in Blue
Our challenge on ArtColony this month is "Things We Love" and both this crystal bowl and my fabulous Nikko blue hydrangeas are things that I absolutely love. This is a painting a have had tucked back for a while as I do not consider it finished. Can't decide on a few things that I want to adjust value-wise. An artist friend once told me that if I really couldn't decide which direction I wanted to go, put the brush down and don't do anything. So, that's what I've done with this painting. I do like it though and just love painting crystal. This is 15x22 on Arches 140# CP paper. Colors were AJ cobalt, UMB, turquoise, perm rose, quin magenta, quin burnt orange, and new gamboge.
