I have been working with triads of new primary colors just to see what will happen. This time I used Perylene Red, Hansa Yellow Medium, and Colbalt Blue. Perylene Red is a much stronger and warmer color than the rose color I usually work with. I started with the flower on the left because the pattern I created in the lower left indicated that I needed a flower there. I didn't draw any flowers ahead of time and just put them in with the brush. I made two more and then added some leaves as I went along. I wasn't sure I liked the red because I'm more comfortable with the softness of the rose color. I wasn't sure I even like the painting. I left it at that, but I came back the next day and added some more background. After all what did I have to lose? Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I think it did come together. What do you think?
The following pictures started as an exercise, with nothing planned ahead of time. Just playing with new colors and shapes to see where they would lead me. You make the paint dance across the paper and follow where it leads you. Then you get this picture in mind and finish it. They were originally on one sheet of paper, but I split them, making them into two pieces.
