The range of colors, the colors themselves, all add up to a mood or visual sensation. By changing the hues, we change much more.
Restricting colors (I find this a BIG challenge!) is a technique I am striving towards.
When space limits me to work on just one project at time, the Inner Kid won’t listen to me. “More Colors!” is the constant command.
If I had a few pieces on the go and space to dip between them this would be much more simple
But for now, working within the parameters of my living/painting space, I have to exercise a little more self discipline to make these more subtle images happen
Initially this page was to be just 2 colors: Olive green and burnt orange.
So the fact that I only allowed in some different shades of orange, I consider a victory!
And the results have (for now at least) left Inner Kid in slightly hushed awe: Maybe less is more!
