New: “Rose” 48 x 48

Color is often as much the subject of certain pieces as is the central element of the composition. In this piece, I knew I wanted the facade to be a light shade of red, not too light, but not too dark. As the painting evolved, the rosy tones of the underpainting seemed just about right, so I left them, and painted over with thicker pigment, but with little modification to the underlying color. The overall palette of the piece came together as the painting progressed, with an effort to keep that initial color front and center, and worthy of becoming the subject. “Rose” 48 x 48
