I like the red house singing out against the green

Thanks Carolann. With so much green, it was begging for some red. ;)

I love this painting - the thickness of the layers and yes the red against the green really works. But I love all the different greens in the foreground.

Hi Judy. I use a lot of black to mix my greens. Don't think I've ever used green out of a tube.

Hi Bill, I'm really enjoying this series! With the exciting color in the architecture my eye goes right there. And I like that I can see some of your underpainting peeking through here and there.

The umbrella painting in your last post was very good too. The street level perspective makes me feel almost like I could step into it and grab a seat under one of those umbrellas.

Bill--your work is wonderfully expressive. If you have only been painting for a year, you've devloped a lot of confidence early on. Really nice work!

Hi Kim. It used to bother me when I left some canvas showing. I got over that though. :)

Yeah. I like the Miami piece also.

Hello Jack. Thanks for stopping by. Yep, I started painting at the first of March '08, so it's been a year now.

Appreciate the comments.
