Black Paint

Color black, 2013

One of the rules of my artistic process is to leave out the black paint.I tend to uses bright and clear colors, which doesn’t play well with black. When I need a dark tone, I use Prussian blue mix with Jenkins green and Dioxazine violet…the idea is to get a richer contrast in my work. If grey is needed I just add some white and Ochre yellow.                                                                
Now that said, I’m starting a new series for a group shows called Visionelle. My inspiration is a black and white photograph. So may be black will be in my future!

Future paintings for 2013

In my studio there are white canvases awaiting my brushes. Where does the time go?
I am part of a group of professional women artists, who meet weekly to plan their goals for the following week. We give each other inspiration to achieve our objectives. I have accomplished a portion of my goals and next week I will focus on my studio and painting!

After all, that’s what I love to do.
