12×18 original pastel on sanded paper
Contrast! It is a powerful design tool. Yellow is opposite of purple on the color wheel. Orange is opposite of blue. Warm green contrasts with cool green. I just had to paint this collection of flowers that a friend brought to me when I was having a bad back day. I put them in a pickle jar because I couldn’t find a vase, then I started painting, bad back or not. I was inspired.
