Crimson & Clover

Crimson & Clover

$375.00 plus shipping
This little Maine Coon is tending his Crimson & Clover on a sunny summer day. This kitty, along with his crimson blooms, was painted with a complementary limited palette of reds and greens. Four reds were used along with four (tube) greens and titanium white. The reds ranged from cad red to quin rose, the greens from green-gold to hooker's green deep. Florals are easy with this palette, since the greens are so dominant. And beautiful "cat darks" are easily mixed with quin magenta or alizarin crimson and hooker's green deep. Cad orange light (Liquitex brand with slight pink cast) was used as the usual underpainting. Crimson & Clover will be one of the paintings hanging in my "Colorful Cats & Flowers" show at Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg during the upcoming months of July and August. It will be in the Auditorium Gallery directly behind the theatre and open during regular weekly business hours (9am-5pm). Come by and see my new flowers and cats, both small and large. Your comments are always welcome.
