Here is one of the paintings I took into art discussion today. The topic was simultaneous contrast. To see what everyone else brought...go HERE.

What beautiful color, Celeste! I was instantly transported to OR and was reminded of the beaches I've been too in the PNW. Gorgeous work!

Melting Color

Mike's Ice Cream? And then mixed with
Simultaneous Contrast?
means you are what surrounds you
and so eat quickly because
this unfinished painting is
finished, melting in our eyes.

Great start. Love the composition. What do you mean with the phrase simultaneous contrast?

Beautiful start, Celeste...I love the red umbrellas and that wonderful light hitting them...nice work!!!!

Polly Birchall said...

Really love this and the touches of red

Your skill with direct painting is enviable. Both these landscapes are terrific, very spontaneous and energetic compositions with good color.
