"Reflecting Color and Light" 6"x 6", oil

“In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.” – Sir Francis Bacon 

When I set up this painting, I was interested in a traditional approach while creating a warm atmosphere.I pulled out my warm colors like cadmium red and cadmium yellow and complemented them with ultramarine blue. I also used a low light that brought out the brightness of each of the local color and their reflections.
