Add a Pop of Color!

Color Inspiration - Painted Poppy Pods

I painted this piece for a client who loves purple and teal in muted, earthy undertones.  I used various values and saturation levels, but felt I needed something more to make the palette pop. By consulting my color wheel, I realized that just a hint of cool gold would help create more movement and interest, yet still work within her color palette.

Color Inspiration - MT's Tail Light

My friend Michael Tomlinson - singer, songwriter, comedian, story teller, humanitarian... keeps me giggling with his tall tales (for some laughs read his facebook stories).

He also has an affinity for old vehicles. Don't you just love the colors of this one? Yellow and red with a smattering of rust, and even some mauve spider webs thrown in!
