Couch Grouch

Mr. Tuxedo, suddenly awakened from his nap for a photo shoot! 8×10 original oil on panel, $250

There he was, all cozy on the back of the couch, and wham! There’s a camera in his face. “Poor guy,” my husband would say. He totally identifies with Tux. Hey, it’s for art’s sake!

All kidding aside, I was interested in creating a limited palette painting using four colors and white. I used Cadmium Orange, Alizarin Crimson, Phthalo Blue and Phthalo Green. It was really fun to see how the colors combined and created a split complementary color scheme.
