BEE BALM AND CHERRIES oil on canvas 8"X6" SOLD
I painted this same turquoise vase and posted it in June. If you look back at that painting you will notice that it looks more blue than turquoise. Those of you who are familiar with Joseph Alber's color theory will realize why. In the earlier painting my background and flower were both orange so my eye wanted to see blue...the compliment. This one is a closer match to the actual vase color because the background is nuetral. Kind of an aha! moment for me. I actually did retain something from that class that seemed so silly all those years ago.
