Colour Story

Colour Story
24" x 24"  - acrylic on canvas

I know this looks rather neon, even florescent - and magenta pink and lime green are the dominant hues - but in reality it is not quite as insanely red as what you see here. I find that reds are very hard to reproduce accurately. But having said that - it is a colourful painting - and hopefully a good visual tonic for a cold and colourless winter day. 

I painted this same view (based on an extremely boring photo I snapped in Haliburton - see below) a year ago, and really wanted to try it again, but larger. The palette is essentially the same as before - but the brushstrokes are  much looser.  

Wherever you are I hope your day is full of colour - cheers!
