Winter Solstice and Wolf Kahn quote
“Eighty percent of painting is color. The problem is that when you mention color, people automatically assume you’re talking about bright color–colorful, loud, or boisterous hues. Color used in an uncontrolled way, without proper concern for the tone and structure of a painting, comes across as garish.” Wolf Kahn
I admit it, I can be guilty of too much color. Finally, I realize now that the painting is only as good as the quality of its grays. Therefore my quest is to create the most beautiful grays and have color support them.
In the studio I work to capture the feeling of the winter solstice.
