My intention for this painting was to use complementary colors to make this piece sing! The chairs were painted wet-in-wet, dropping the pigments into the the damp areas of the paper. I love the way the pigments have mingled and flowed into each other. This is the main attribute of watercolors, and I love to take advantage of this.
Most of the time I begin painting the positive shapes of my design, as it is the key element of my composition. I did some experimenting on scrap paper of various textures and decided on the round, plastic shapes behind and around the chairs. And I used of a variety of green pigments, which is the complement of red. The painting is done on Arches cold press watercolor paper and Artists’ finest quality pigments.
