"In the Golden Circle"

8 x 8"
oil on canvas

The other day, I did a 15 minute warmup painting that I enjoyed so much I decided to expand on it. The gold plate reflecting blue afternoon light is just so deliciously colorful. When painting gold, never forget to throw some green into the mix! Yellow Ochre + Ultramarine Blue make an excellent greeny gold.

15 minute warm-up, oil on paper coated with acrylic matte medium, approx 4x6"

It's been a good day. I started it off by running 6 miles with this lady, talking art (almost) the whole time, then painted until it was time to head to a birthday party with my daughter. And found out they were serving margaritas. Score!
