Color Tra la la

You'll hear from most artists that they were drawn to their art by color and light, be it a photographer or painter. I'm no different. Along with that comes learning what you like, the colors you're drawn to and what colors can go (or not) together. I truly feel inspired by color and the feeling of the contrasting colors vs the complimentary colors on a painting. One feels very easy and smooth, like it goes together, and the contrasting is a little bolder. Playing with the colors, for me, is completely mood based. What do I feel like today? Do I want to paint something pretty, harsh, light, or dark? Am I inspired by my home, the yard, the Season at the moment? Do I want something with a lot of texture, which can illicit it's own response when seeing it? No matter what I paint, it always starts with color. Lovely, beautiful, brilliant color.
