I tried something a little different in yesterdays painting in regards to color harmony.  I've been studying other artists color choices and thought I'd try a very limited color range on this one.  I rather like the neutrals but I feel the red is a bit too similar throughout.  It has been a good study though.  The neutral tones appeal to me, I think I'll try this again with something other than the red.

  1. Love the reds with the purples and mauve's, and the way you have handled the background too.

  2. Thank you Diana! The background went through some changes, I started out with a dark red tapestry in the background, but it was distracting and too much red...I like it much better this way!
