Hunting Red

Painting with red is so interesting.  Pastels are rich and easy to use.  I wiped off the old sketch of the corner of the house and played in the dust for about 20 minutes.  I didn't bother with complements to make it more realistic.  I just had fun.

Number 6, red

Another gloomy day here.  Red helps brighten the day and give energy, right?

Jennifer Rose, I was trying to avoid the angry part. Tee hee.
