I'm all over this BrianLove the intensity of colour in the "hills" Love the abstract quality, and again, the energy. Love the interpretation. Julie
Brian, I love this one a lot. I notice you have 3 strong primary colors in here--and I like it. I know you've said before that 3 strong primaries together often don't work. Is there something you did that makes this one work?
Thanks Julie for your comments.Elliot, yes I did say 3 primaries in one painting doesn't usually work, but every rule can be broken as you know. Of course I wasn't conscious of this until you pointed it out. Not sure why it works, I guess the blue is the strongest in "chroma" and the reds and yellows are mutted somewhat and not as pure a color???? Anyways , thanks for commenting here. Brian
