How to Punch Up Your Color - Green Meadow Lavender Farm - Flower and Landscape Paintings by Nancy Medina Art

Green Meadow Lavender Farms
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Gallery Wrap Canvas

Green Meadow Lavender Farms is the newest daily painting in Flower Mound Studio, I warmed up the purple brushes and mixed up warms and cools into my piles, planting them right next to the greens. I have a little mantra I repeat even when I'm alone in my studio (yes, I am certifiably an artist as well as certifiable) that goes something like this - place the color next to but not on top of the other color. It helps me remember not to blend into oblivion and keeps those color punches powerful.
