There is something about this rainbow effect, including the complementary color accent in the upper left corner (Todd’s shirt against the yellow background) that intrigues me.
When I purposely use gradations moving from one end of the spectrum to the other, I have failed. This sketch done last night at the Blues Jam surprised me. The color choices were totally right-brained. I wasn’t aware that I had painted a rainbow until I looked at it later. It was the first painting of the evening after a week of mental and emotional challenges. The fact that I had given Rob four legs (the fourth was Maria’s suggestion) left me free to be ridiculous. Ahhhh…. I should be ridiculous more often. Watercolor Sketch: Drawn first with black ink using a dip pen, followed by watercolor. Painted during the Tuesday Night, Todd Wolfe Blues Jam at the Larry Holmes Ringside Restaurant in Easton, PA.
