Mushroon Night 064 & 065
I found this awesome portobello at the store Monday while recovering from the Cotton Pickin' Fair. I loved the colors and the shapes, but it proved a difficult subject. I think the earth tones threw me for a loop. I used burnt umber instead of mixing a brown with green and red, I think that made everything look of in the one with the blue background. It is also quite the deaprture from my usual colorist apIt was a good night, 2 pieces. It has me curious enough to try some more with fauvist color choices.
I completed a comissioned piece tonight (too dark for a picture) and I hope to get back to the mushroom again and see what I can do...
