Another quick study using only 4 Double Split Complements: blue and orange and violet and yellow. I didn't use much yellow, though and did mix a bit. I think on the next painting I will use the same colors and very limited mixing. There's enough darks and lights without re-combining - I may end up with a purple horse, but hey, it's MY horse painting and and I can do what I want to!
My buddy/business partner, Laurie, just came out of teaching a fabulous workshop, and part of what she taught was the need to step out of your comfort zone. I believe that to be true in both art and other parts of your life. I have an opportunity to travel to Haiti in October and help with the ongoing monumental cleaning tasks. This is not something I normally participate in - I am usually happy to give money for such efforts, but actually going in person and using my OWN muscles!!!??? In un-airconditioned, no-electronics, third world Haiti??? Whew - my family thinks I'm nuts...I cannot ignore that little voice in my head that says "you CAN make a difference, however small."  And this will definitely be a step out of my comfort zone.
Psalm 23:4
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
