Silver Geese in Pink Light

about 9x9 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper $100. plus shipping and tax
Creating color harmony is one of the most important aspects to having a successful painting. In this painting I chose pink- alizarin-violet - blue-all cooled hues. For a little spice a grayed down (to cool it) burnt sienna in the foreground land. If the burnt sienna was left un-grayed it would break the harmony. That's my logic:-)
On another note I have become addicted to Uart paper. Its texture, versatility and underlying warmth is a perfect support for my pastel paintings. In addition it holds the pastel without use of fixative and loves watercolor. Try it sometime.
