Maybe it has something to do with the weather with all that snow all around us, but right now I am into the many shades of white. Inspiration out my studio window! I have two large white florals on the easel right now. One is a full sheet watercolor. The other is a 36” x 36’ acrylic. They are very different paintings these two. The similarity ends at white. The watercolor although painted with saturated colours is softer, a bit romantic.
The acrylic, well is very bold. In this version the yellow background is eye popping. I have since begun to redden it up. Not entirely sure, but the background may go almost black by the time it is finished.
Let me know what you think - red or black background?
