8. Moving from green to blue
'Filitosa 2' - acrylic on calico £1200 Liz Cleves
I enjoyed painting 'Filitosa 1' to such an extent that I was inspired to follow through with the theme that emerged from watching the programmes about The Planets presented by Professor Brian Cox.
In this second piece I have biased the palette towards blue. I have used indigo, cerulean, cobalt teal and ultramarine blues. The orange areas are there to create a dynamic contrast.
Working on calico is interesting in itself because it absorbs paint fast allowing me to keep working faster than I can on canvas duck.
(My next piece... Filitosa 3 will use warm reds and earth tones).
