I can' t believe it's been over a month I've not posted a new painting. After seeing my agent and speaking with a few galleries the consensus full colour night scenes. The Heure Blue series continues. This Tabac night scene is in the works. I love how the tree canopy reflects the red light from the red spiral carrotte.
The spiral neon carrottes that indicate Tabac shops are disappearing. Many of the paintings I've done in the Parisian series are now testimonials of what how the city has changed in the last eight years.
Only high quality paints can get you these colours. Knowledge of mixing colours is a must. Cadmium red mixed with ivory black or phtalo green for darker reds. Golden ochre, or cadmium orange and quinacridone for lighter reds. Now white, please!
