Have you ever wanted to paint something for the sheer joy of painting with colors that don't necessarily go where you put them and don't necessarily go with what you're painting? I wanted to do something "fallish", and didn't want to paint corn or flowers or pumpkins so I came up with this pomegranete and it was such fun. Windows aren't magenta and gamboge...but mine are. Dishes don't have magenta shadows for no reason...but mine does. The background is of just about everything on my pallete that was on the warm side. I'm getting ready to do a 3 day workshop with Kathleen Alexander this week, and the palette we'll be using is not the usual rather gaudy hues I enjoy (it's going to be very tame I think), so I thought I'd be good and use up my wild colors today. I'll be serious about colors tomorrow...maybe.
