Here is another of my alla prima painting efforts from our trip to Santa Cruz. Every night we sat in this room and discussed our work from the day. We also spent quite a lot of time discussing artist Wayne Thiebaud and halation. Halation refers to the aura/hazy color around the edge of a subject or vibrations of two colors next to each other. Theibaud had halation down pat and I think I might have managed a little of it myself in this painting. I am partial to this painting for it's whimsey. It could use a curled up cat, but I am seldom successful at fudging things in long after the fact.
