Summer of This Year
June 2020. Acrylic on panel, 8 x 10 in.
When I finish a painting sometimes I have some piles of paint left on the palette, so I’ll take a small, inexpensive panel like this one and use those tail-ends to do a little improvisation. It’s one of my favorite things to do because I have zero load on it, no plan and no expectations – just “seeing what happens”. I always learn something, and sometimes I like the results. Like this one, which I like pretty swell. The color is off-balance in this image, though, because the scanner couldn’t pick up the viridian – that dull blue should be a luscious aqua-green. A summer palette.
