It makes my heart sing to use bright colors, and when I can contrast them with black – well, I am never happier. When I used to sew and quilt, I would always be looking to create a stained-glass effect in my quilts by combining the black with the jewel-like bright colors.
I’m just enjoying another high contrast swipe today. No fancy experiments, just having fun with my pouring, and seeing how a swipe on canvas might be any different to the swipes I’ve done in the past on panels and tiles. I love the way the black outlines all of the other colored cells. I could simply do these every day and still be happy!
Used in this painting:
Lemon Yellow, Magenta, Bright Orange, Pthalo Green and Black

As usual, here is a quick slideshow of the painting both wet and dry, and some closeups of all those gorgeous bright colored details.
