Purple and Yellow Make....

Acrylic on Masonite, 16" x 20," c. Catherine Vines

A complementary color scheme. This is another in the Magnolia Series, again done with a palette knife. The texture of this painting is a luscious element in its own right.  Claudia, a friend from Seattle, got me started on the palette knife when she talked about her mother using it as a painting tool. It turned out to be a wonderful suggestion. I am currently finishing up a small portrait using the same color scheme but as neutrals.
