Pink apparel on adults always catches me by surprise. I mean, the very idea of going shopping, dully browsing racks of sober garments, catching sight of a stack of crisply folded hot pink sweatpants and thinking, yes. I absolutely must possess these. Tomorrow morning when I pull these neon lights over my getaway sticks, I will be unstoppable. Really, it's an admirable frame of mind when you get right down to it!
This painting began with two of my favorite underpainting colors: iron oxide red under the greens and raw sienna under everything else.
