Bahama Mama 6 x 6 oil on board
This was a pleasure to paint. I like to continue down
this path and see where it leads. I've attempted to
not overwork the paint and be bolder
and less fussy with my mark making.
Something I do before I lay on the color is to
decide what harmony I'm going for.
In this case it was a Tetrad with the primary being blue-violet
and yellow-orange and the secondary red-orange and
blue-green. I have all the colors laid out on my
palette and will use them as well to bend the color bias with.
I do this intuitively once I've made set my original
intention so it gets a bit sloppy sometimes,
But for the most part I think the colors worked out OK.
