Bright colors at the holidays

Posted by PicasaAs the colors of nature drop back to subtle
greys and browns, red becomes an important
color note in our holiday decor. As I was decorating
my mantle and shelves with my doll collection, I
realized that I play with this color balance all
through the year. Punch it up for the winter
months, and tone it down when the colors and
bright sunshine take over.
It's something artists know in doing their work.
Back off the color and tone in parts of the painting
so that the key parts can pop!
Just some thoughts for you.
I'd like to post my latest work, but it is to be a
Christmas gift and I don't want to give it away!
