"Clementine and Colored Papers"
Oil on 5x7 hardboard panel
I have been trying to find something different to add more interest to the backgrounds of my paintings. I have been using these different colored papers to slip under or behind my subjects, and it's always fun to see which colors work, and which ones don't. Then I got the idea to fan a few out, and try it that way. I loved the way this looked, and couldn't wait to paint it.
